Dento Iwama Ryu Aikido

Dento Iwama Ryu Aikido opened at the direction of Dennis Tatoian Sensei to propagate the "true aikido" in the Philippines. Dennis Tatoian Sensei, a 6th Dan student of Saito Sensei, came to the Philippines to teach us the Aikido of O'Sensei. Our dojo name Dento Iwama Ryu Aikido is the Japanese word for the Traditional Iwama Ryu Aikido.


Our Keiko is patterned at the way Aikido is being taught by O'Sensei in Iwama as handed to us by Morihiro Saito Sensei. Saito Sensei is the longest serving student of O'Sensei and is acclaimed to be the master of Aiki Ken and Aiki Jo, the Iwama Aikido weapons curriculum taught by the Founder of Aikido.


We are affiliated to Takemusu Aikido Association in the US, an Iwama style aikido organization affiliated with the Aikikai Hombu Dojo in Japan.

Dento Iwama Ryu Aikido is also affiliated with the Shin Shin Aiki Shurenkai as lead by its Juko Cho Hitohiro Saito the only son of Morihiro Saito.
