Misogikan Dojo is a member of Renshinkai Aikido.

Renshinkai Aikido is under the auspices of 8th-dan Tsutomu Chida-Shihan, a top uchideshi of the late founder of Yoshinkan Aikido, Gozo Shioda-Sensei. Chida-Shihan is working hard to guide the next generation of leaders and teachers by instilling in them the techniques and spirit that he inherited from Gozo Shioda-Sensei.

Chida-Shihan was an uchideshi of Gozo Shioda-Sensei from 1971 and has had the longest career at the Yoshinkan Aikido Honbu. Even after the passing of Gozo Shioda-Sensei in 1994, Chida-Shihan continued his support for 13 years until December of 2007 when he retired from the Yoshinkan Honbu. Later in April of 2008, it came about that he decided to move on from the Yoshinkan organization and established the Renshinkai.

Chida Tsutomu (千田務)was born Oct.4th 1950, and is an 8th dan Shihan and the chief instructor of Aikido Renshinkai, an off-shoot of Yoshinkan aikido. A direct student of founder Shioda Gozo, he studied with Shioda for 25 years from 1969 until Shioda’s death in 1994. Following Shioda's death, Chida continued to serve at the Yoshinkan honbu dojo and was appointed dojocho in 2002. Chida is one of Shioda Gozo's top disciples and a living legend of Yoshinkan aikido. He quickly became one of the most respected and sought after Yoshinkan instructors, and regularly taught seminars overseas to promote Yoshinkan aikido.

Chida resigned from the honbu dojo effective December 2007 shortly after a series of events following the resignation of former headmaster Inoue Kyoichi. Not long after his resignation from Yoshinkan, Chida established Aikido Renshinkai as an independent organization in March 2008.
