Roy Goldberg Sensei is the Senior student of Kiyama Hayawo Shihan. Goldberg Sensei has been awarded the Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu Kodokai Rank of 7th Dan. He is the highest-ranking non-Japanese to earn this rank from Kodokai Hombu Dojo in Kitami, Japan, which also certified him with the rare Kyoju Dairi (representative instructor) teaching license and the third Daito Ryu scroll, the Hiden Ogi. Goldberg Sensei has trained over 3 decades with Kiyama Hayawo Shihan and the leading Shihan from Japan including two Menkyo Kaiden.
Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu is a 1,200-year-old samurai martial art. Once a secret art, passed generation to generation through the Takeda clan, the system of Daito Ryu Aiki Ju-jutsu was revived in the late 19th century by Sokaku Takeda, 32nd in line of the Takeda family. It has directly influenced the development of many popular martial arts, such as Aikido, Shorinji Kempo, Hakko Ryu Jujutsu and Hapkido. Daito Ryu’s core principles focus on subtle manipulations of balance and structure and will complement and enrich any martial arts training.
