Wow!!!! That says alot about Moore Sensei that's pretty cool and different. You almost hear stories abouth the master beating up the guy or the master almost killing the guy and breaking him in half. This is different though a story about a master who doesn't fight just simply intimidates the guy acting like Steve Mcqueen and just doing his stuff all cool. That's a great story this truly is a testament at how good Moore Sensei really is.

Madmusahi so Moore Sensei sounds like he's a really out going man. Going to pubs having a drink with students after class. Does he ever intimidate anyone especially the new students or is he like Toyoda sensei, big laugh and warm smile?? I'm glad I'm getting info cause this is just great stuff this makes me wana train more in the Shinjinkai once I go to Chicago for college.

He's only intimidating in the sense that he's so accomplished at aikido. He's very intense (as you can see if you look him up on google pic searches) but he also smiles. He's never lorded it over anyone that I've ever seen and is a very patient instructor. I imagine as an uchideshi you might have a different view, though (I recommend reading his articles on the Shinjinkai website so you can get a feel for what it might be like).

You are lucky to get to train in Chicago. There are many great aikido dojos in the area. Andy Sato's Kiku Matsu Dojo ( is also really a good choice. He was my other Sensei at the AAA before Toyoda passed away. I have seen some video of his dan tests and he's no one to laugh at. He may always look like he's smiling, but he's a damned imposing teacher. His ki is awesome.

Check them both out and let me know what you think!

There are alot of high quality martial arts schools in Chicago. Aikido World Alliance looks great and it seems that Sato Sensei has carried on the Seminar side of things. While Moore Sensei is more into looking at the tradiotional arts and exploring the different martial arts to get a broader concept of things.Never the less the Aikido World Alliance looks like a top notch school. I'll have to check both the Shinjinkai and Aikido Worls Alliance out when I visit chicago before school starts.
So Madmusashi how come so many of Toyoda Shihan's students formed thier own organizations and schools. I mean what happened to the AAA and AAI I know they're still teaching but why did it fragment??? Also is Sato Sensei in good standing with Moore Sensei and the rest of Toyoda Shihan's students who've created thier own organizations??

Unfortunately, I relocated to L.A. two weeks before Toyoda Sensei passed, so I don't know the ins and outs of the splits, and I don't want to speculate or talk about something that I don't really know about. It would be unfair to everyone in the three organizations if I were to do so, and I remain quiet.

All I can say is, the instructors we've been talking about here are all amazing, and are a natural reflection of Toyoda Sensei's teachings. It's true when they say that you don't know what you've got til it's gone; there isn't a day that goes by that I don't reflect on the training and teachings that I received in Chicago and thank God that I was able to meet and train with people of such high caliber.

Good luck in your training, and let me know who you decide upon!

I'm very sorry it has taken me a while to answer you back. I just came back from Chicago and I checked out The Shinjinkai there. It was a great experience and I really enjoyed watching the class and I was amazed by the power and instruction of Moore Sensei. It was really great and I was impressed and thrilled. I also had a chance to watch the Iaido class and that also sparked a light of interest and I was so impressed with the intensity they put. So i said to my self this school is definnetely for me. Thank you so much for all your help madmusashi with out you I would have not even bothered looking into the Shinjinkai. You've been a great help and I can't wait to stary training after I graduate Highschool. I have a year left and I'm out hopefully get accepted in Loyola or Depaul. Again thank you.
