Kenshiro Abbe Sensei - Traditional Aikido
Kenshiro Abbe ~ 8th dan Judo ~ 6th dan Aikido ~ 6th dan Karate ~ 6th dan Kendo.
" No matter your pretence, you are what you are and nothing more !! " Kenshiro Abbe Sensei 1915 ~ 1985.
My father Henry Ellis was a direct student of the legendary Budo Master Kenshiro Abbe Sensei from 1957. " The Ellis Schools of Traditional Aikido " have always followed the true traditional teachings of K Abbe Sensei, to this day, my father has always taught a strong and Positive Aikido style, believing that Aikido is a Martial Art. Modern Aikido is now many different things to many different people. Aikido seems to attract some latent hippy characaters and wannabe martial artists. To some it is some kind of quasi religeon. My father has said how saddenend he is to see much of what is offered as `` Aikido `` today is little more that a form of dancing. Or perhaps they should have just gone to a Yoga class.
