MISHIMA RENSEIKAI ----Its Origin of Name
In the 36 of the Showa erra(1961),we set up ”MISHIMA RENSEIKAI”.
We named “RENSEI” from Kiyoyuki Terada Shihn’s name”精“（sei）.,
We used “練精“（RENSEI）, not used “錬成”（RENSEI）.The reason was that “練“ means “Practice”. It is one of our purpose of AIKIDO. And ,now RENSEIKAI has been continuing under this spirit.
How did RENSEIKAI get the approval as YOSHINKAN MISHIMA BRANCH?
In 36 of the Showa (1961), we invited Gozo Shioda ,AIKIDO YOSHINKAN KANCHO.
So we held “ the 1st AIKIDO DEMONSTRATION “ at Mishima public hall. After that
Terada Shihan , Matsuo Shihan and other coaches from AIKIDO YOSHINKAN taught us Aikido.
RENSEIKAI became the first BRANCH of YOSHINKAN AIKIDO .
（From the book “Aikido no tanoshimikata”(How to enjoy Aikido) written by Gozo Shioda, AIKIDO YOSHINKAN KANCHO.
The book was published on 38 of the Showa era(1963) 10th , January.）

In 61 of Showa era(1986) , MIMSHIM A AIKIDO LEAGUE was established.

About YOSHINKAN AIKIDO
YOSHINKAN AIKIDO uses an enemy’s pushing or pulling strength. So the strength does not meet. It is good for health , beauty , self defense technics. Everyone can practice if he or she are small , old ,and so on.
Usually we don’t do fight. We practice many times so that we can use when we are attacked. There is no fight in AIKIDO. In AIKIDO , There are no loser and feeling of inferiority. We improve our technics in pure mind. This is why AIKIDO is said that “the harmony martial arts”.
