Based in the United Kingdom, Andrew Shidoin has a long history with Aikido Shudokan worldwide, having lived and trained at the Honbu Dojo and attending various international training camps and seminars.
Andrew Medland Shidoin grew up in Barnstaple, North Devon, and began training with Eddie Stratton Sensei in 1997. After Stratton Sensei passed away, he travelled with others to Malaysia and later, Australia, in search of good training.
