Айкидо Тендокан доджо (  е специализирана школа за изучаване на бойното изкуство Айкидо, както е селектирано и предадено от учителя шихан Фумио Тойода, личен ученик на шихан Койчи Тохей



Tendokan dojo originated under the leadership of Edward Tenzen Germanov Sensei (6 th Dan Aikidai and Zen priest) in 1990 as Central Aikido club. In 1994 Fumio Toyoda Shihan gives the name TENDOKAN DOJO. This name “Ten Do Kan” is a
reflection of the sincerity of the training offered here and our commitment to integrate Budo (martialway) and Zen (meditation). This focus on integrating a unique blend of martial arts training with meditation is complemented by our programs in fine arts. We use this training model, traditionally called “Ken – Zen – Sho” for martial art – meditation – fine arts, our rich dojo culture and world-class instruction to set our students on a path to realizing their most authentic self. Therefore, together with the aikido classes we have also Zen and Ikebana. 
Tendokan dojo has been hosting all BAA (Bulgarian Aikido Association) seminars since 1991 and many various seminars led by worldwide aikido instructors:
Toyoda Shihan (1947-2001), Yasuo Kobayashi Shihan, Michelle Quaranta Shihan,

Makoto Ito Shihan, Hiroshi Tajiri Shihan, and many others. Tendokandojo is with deep and strong roots which let us dream big and fly high to the future as the true meaning is in the constant development.
We have classes available every day. We accept kids and adults. We welcome new members at any time during the year. Thanks to long-term experience, our newcomers learn very quickly. We are connected to a wide range of friends and colleagues from all over the country and the world and you have the chance to reach us from the lowest to the highest level. 
Tendokan dojo hosts various corporate seminars how to use Aikido principles in the business.
