All Yoshinkan dojo in Australia affiliate back to Yoshinkan Hombu in Japan, rather than an Australian based headquarters. Ther eare now Yoshinkan dojo in many of Australias capital cities. Joe Thambu Sensei , probably Australias most famous aikidoka is based in Melbourne. There is no head of Yoshinkan in Australia but the Shudokan dojo has links to most of the dojo in Australia (http://www.aikidoshudokan.com/links/) or Mori Sensei dojo in Brisbane (http://www.yoshinkan.info/index.php?pageID=Links).
Recently there were some changes to Yoshinkan in Japan and a new organisation Renshinkai has formed, its possible a few dojo in Australia may follow them in the future http://www.renshinkai.com/e/
