Hiroshi Tada (多田 宏, ただ ひろし, Tada Hiroshi) (born December 14, 1929) is a Japanese aikido teacher holding the rank of 9th dan in the Aikikai.[2][14][15]

Born in Tokyo within a former Samurai family, Tada first studied his family's style of archery (Heki-Ryū Chikurin-ha Ban-pa) under his father in the family's house in Jiyūgaoka.[1] He then became a member of the Waseda University karate club before starting training in aikido at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo under aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba in March 1950.[1] He was dispatched to Rome, Italy in 1964 where he established the Italian Dojo Centrale in 1967.[2] He returned to Japan in 1971 to resume teaching at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo.[6]

To supplement aikido training, he has developed a system of breathing and meditative exercises called ki no renma (気の錬磨, cultivation of ki) based largely on the teachings of Nakamura Tempu and the Ichikukai Dojo.[2][16]
