Calligraphies located in the dojo are penned by Mitsugi Saotome Sensei and his early calligraphy instructor. Sensei’s calligraphies are written under his pen name 巖仁. Sensei’s calligraphy can be found in Aikido dojo and private homes of practitioners around the world. If you are fortunate enough to see them, the expressive nature is dynamic and no two are similar.
Some prints of these calligraphies are available for purchase by members and guests for display in their own home or dojo.
A selection of calligraphies is displayed here, and there are more in the dojo when visiting.
