Since Mel has relocated from Saudi Arabia to Manila, he founded Shuryukan Philippines in June of 2012, with technical assistance from Romeo Ballares Sensei (Shihan-Dai), Shuryukan aims to teach Aikido to the community. The goal is to share and practice basic movements &
techniques over and over again to learn how to move our bodies in
response to different types of power exerted by the opponent. Repeated
and correct practice of these basic techniques eventually enables our
students to react instinctively and to apply the appropriate technique
in almost any situation he finds himself, whether it takes place in the
dojo or at unexpected moment in daily life, verbal or otherwise
physical. Instructions are minutely detailed, as we pay special attention to the
position of the hands and feet. Instructors and students
train very seriously yet interact with each other like family members.
Mission Statement To share the Japanese Martial Art of Aikido to the community and nearby areas.
Vision Statement To create a harmonious environment through regular practice of Aikido therefore producing good citizens that can contribute to the community.
