In addition to the activity of Akido teaching, teacher Alberto developed next to his master, Shikanai Sensei, one amazing ability, becoming an armorer craftsman. He manufactures weapons for Aikido training like bokens (Japanese wood sword), shotos (a medium size Japanese wood sword), Jos (wood staff) and tantos (wood knives). All pieces are made under a rigorous quality process. The pieces are evaluated by Shikanai Sensei himself.

Teacher Alberto has his ability recognized internationally. His products are sold for many countries and answer the necessities of many different martial arts as, for example, Aikido, Jodo and Kendo. He also manufactures specific costumes of excellent quality, as hakamas and doguis (kimonos), for the practice of different martial arts.

   
 

NIO means the representation of two guardians, normally represented in the shape of two invincible warriors in the entrance of many shrines in Japan, China and Korea. They represent the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end, the birth and the death. One has his mouth open, and the other his mouth closed. One gives life, the other takes it off. They are in balance, fully conscious of their destiny as warriors.
