Welcome to Vancouver Shomonkai.

Our dojo is a non-profit organization whose goal is to practice Aikido as our founding members were taught in Fukuoka, Japan, under the tutelage of Suganuma Sensei, one of the last uchideshi (live-in students) of O-Sensei, the Founder of Aikido. The dojo holds weekly classes in Burnaby and Vancouver (see Class Schedules). We invite interested members of the public to observe any of our classes, demonstrations or special events. If you are interested in our classes/events, please check our Calendar page.


Happy New Year!

  • Happy New Year! It's finally 2016 here in Vancouver. At the end of the last year, the new dojo at Nikkei Place was completed, which was our dream for years. We are so happy to start our 15th anniversary year with the new dojo! We sincerely appreciate all the dojo members, family, and friends who contributed to make it happen. We are looking forward to practicing with all of you in the new dojo soon. We wish you all a wonderful New Year!
