John Araujo Sensei is the founder of his own organization/federation Bushido Tenshin Aikido Federation and Currently organized under an independent martial arts federation. This dojo maintains an open door policy and everyone is welcome to train with us. We are an independent dojo and we're not affiliated to any US based Aikido organizations. Aikido was created by Ueshiba Morihei. He is the father of Aikido. We all have different teachers but we all share the same father. As such we are all brother and sisters in aikido. By maintaining our independence, this gives us the ability to attend and seminar, workshop, or special camp of any aikido organization. Organizations tend to stifle it's members; Like if you're part of 123 Aikido Organization you cannot attend ABC Aikido Organization's. For more info on the Bushido Tenshin Aikido Federation
