Tadashi Komenoi’s inroads prompted the Aikikai Hombu Dojo to appoint him as their official representative in the Philippines. The Hombu Dojo, through Komenoi, conveyed its objective of uniting all Filipino aikido practitioners from various dojos and organizations into one federation. However, Mr. Komenoi realized this was impossible. Instead, he convinced all the dojos under his tutelage to unify into one organization. Heads of said organizations namely Royce Reyes of the Makati YMCA Aikido Club, Ipe Pelino of the Quezon City Aikido Club, Marielle Macapawa of the Red Tiger Aikido Club, Manolo Villegas of the Makiling Aikido Dojo and Abe Chavez of Shinbu held several meetings. With the assistance of their legal counsel, Atty. Gerry Villaluz, they adopted a constitution and officially formed Aikido Philippines.
On 21 November 1992, Aikido Philippines gained recognition as an accredited Aikido organization under the Aikikai Hombu Dojo. The previous Doshu, the late Kisshomaru Ueshiba, signed the certificate of recognition. In 1994, Kawasho Corporation recalled Mr. Komenoi back to Japan. Aikido Philippines relied on its own strength and flourished despite being orphaned by the departure of Mr. Komenoi.
In 1997, Aikido Philippines, Inc. registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. On 30 November 1997, the organization achieved one of its greatest milestones: a memorandum of agreement was signed between PAPA and AIKIPHIL to bond together and to assist each other in the propagation of Aikido as taught by O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba.
In 1998, Japan Foundation gave Aikido Philippines, Inc. and PAPA a grant for the training of blackbelts of both organizations by an instructor from Hombu Dojo. In July 1998, Hiroshi Fujimaki Shidoin from Hombu Dojo came to the Philippines for this purpose. From 01 July through 15 December 1998, Fujimaki Shidoin trained blackbelts from both organizations. This training modernized and upgraded Aikido in the Philippines to its present level. the three federations Aikido Philippines, Filipino Federation of Aikido, and Pilipinas Aikido Propagation Association have been inviting shihans three times a year to the Philippines for instruction.
Since its formation in 1992, Aikido Philippines, Inc. has grown into one of the strongest and most stable aikido organizations in the Philippines. Yearly summer camp hosted by different dojos all over the country is one of its major activities and continuously developing new dojo and training of Aikidoka.
In the year 2014 Aikido Philippines moved further to greater heights to cope up with its growth by adopting new management structure and organizational changes.
At present Aikido Philippines is being headed by the dojo heads which they form themselves to become the Central Committee of Aikido Philippines and appointed Cris Buenaseda, 6th dan, as its chief instructor, Rommel Miel, 4th dan as liaison officer for international and local affairs and Jobot Velasco,1st dan as the Secretary General.
Aikido Philippines being true to its mission to propagate Aikido, went on propagating and teaching students as envisioned by the founder O’Sensei Morihei Ueshiba, and in accordance with the Aikikai Federation Standards.
