Aikido Shioda Gozo
Gōzō Shioda (塩田 剛三, Shioda Gōzō, September 9, 1915 - July 17, 1994), was a Japanese aikido teacher and the founder of the Yoshinkan style of aikido.
Shioda was a student of judo while young, and after being easily thrown by Morihei Ueshiba after a demonstration, became his student in 1932. He also studied aikijujutsu.
He has become known as one of the most "fiery" or "vigorous" people of aikido history. In 1961 he was awarded a 9th dan rank by Ueshiba and in 1985 he received 10th dan and the title Sōke from the International Budo Federation.
