Japanese Business Manners Seminar

Build Better Business Relationships

Next Class being planned for Fall 2022

This seminar is a "must take" session for those who have just started working at a Japanese company of who want to build better business relationships with their Japanese business partners, clients and customers.

In 1-hour you'll learn:

  • The right way to exchange business cards (meishi)

  • The right etiquette for gift-giving, seasons greetings & other events

  • Business communications for creating warm, long-lasting relationships


I was given a chance to do an internship at a Japanese company with no guarantee of a job offer after it was finished.  But because of the lessons and techniques that Yoshie-sensei taught me, I became the first ever foreign employee at this company!  Definitely don't miss this seminar.

About the Instructor


Yoshie Sugai

Shihan (Master Teacher)

Born in 1969. Yoshie Sugai is the main teacher (Shihan) of Chiseikan and an 8th degree black belt (Shihan-dai) in Nenshinryu Budo. She has been studying Aikido in Japan and abroad since 1996. Four years after taking a break from practice (for giving birth and childcare for her two sons), she met the Kinefuchi Shihan in 2003 and established the Aikido Club at the International University of Minami Uonuma City. Yoshie-sensei practiced for 10 years in all four dojos where Kinefuchi-sensei taught, and helped create the style of Iyonumaryu Aikido. In 2013, she opened the Iyonumaryu Aikido Kyoto Dojo. In addition to managing two dojos, Yoshie-sensei has created unique workshops and training programs for top executives at large companies that teach how to apply martial arts philosophy to business strategy and everyday life.


In the fall of 2020, Iyonuma Ryu Aikido was renamed Nenshinryu Budo, and in the spring of 2021, the Chiseikan dojo was established in Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto City.
