Aikido Tendokan Dojo (  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 was created by Ed Tenzen Germanov Sensei (6th Dan Aikikai and Zen priest) in 1990 with its original name - Central Aikido Club.

In 1994, Fumio Toyoda Shihan gave us the name Tendokan Dojo. This name reflects the sincerity of our training and our commitment to integrate Budo (Warrior's Way) and Zen (spiritual development). This focus is a unique combination of long practice in martial arts with zazen and is complemented by our creative development and arts programs.

Tendokan Dojo has hosted all the BAA (Bulgarian Aikido Association) seminars since 1991, led by world aikido instructors: Toyoda Shihan (1947-2001), Yasu Kobayashi Shihan, Mikele Quaranta Shihan, Makoto Ito Shihan, Hiroshi Tajiri others.

Tendokan Dojo has deep and strong roots that allow us to dream, grow and create in the future, because the true meaning of our existence and meaning is in constant development.



Aikido is traditional martial art created in the beginning of 20 th century from O-Sensei Morihei Ueshiba


To describe what Zen is and where does it come from is long and useless exercise. The heart of Zen is the practice itself.


The art of Ikebana starts in 15 th century. The Sogetsu school we follow is created in 1926 and is the most modern Ikebana school in Japan.
