Garry Masters

Congratulations to Sensei Garry Masters from the Misogikan on being awarded 7th Dan Yoshinkan Aikido Instructor by Kancho Yasuhisa Shioda Sensei.

Well deserved for your many years of teaching, developing and promoting Yoshinkan Aikido in the UK. You have never faltered in your commitment to Yoshinkan Aikido and it is acknowledged and respected by all who have met you.

It was in 1978 when you first entered my dojo and since that time your dedication to both myself and Aikido have been a shining example to all with your friendship to me beyond value.

Was it really 30 years ago that this pale faced young man come to my dojo and asked if he could train Aikido?

30 years, that half a life time and in all this time this young man has dedicated his life to the study of Yoshinkan Aikido.
He has done this despite being in very bad health at times and overcoming all obstacle's with his determination and strong spirit.
He has been not only my student but also my friend who has stood by me through good times and bad.
Garry Sensei is now a master of Aikido and leads the Kenshinkai with the qualities of a great Sensei.

Garry Sensei it is my privilege to know you and to be able to say that you are my friend, I, my wife Oksana and all of the members of the Misogikan
Group here in Russia send our congratulations on celebrating your 30 years in Aikido and wish you good luck and health leading towards your next celebration.


With respect
