Erik Calderon's Martial Arts Academy

Aikido ShinKiKan

About Us

Aikido ShinKiKan was founded by Erik Sasha Calderon, in 1998. Now with over 40 years of experience in the martial arts he continues to teach and train every week.

At the age of 19 he moved to Tokyo, Japan where he lived for over 6 years training at the Aikikai World Headquarters under Kisshomaru Ueshiba.

Calderon sensei had the special opportunity to become an apprentice of Kato, Hiroshi Shihan. With a direct lineage to the founder of Aikido, Morihei Ueshiba, Calderon sensei learned a traditional form of Aikido from Japan.

Aikido literally translate into English as The Way of Spiritual Harmony and is meant to be a means to express love through a form of self defense that protects, not only the self, but the person attacking as well.
