It is with great delight that I present to you this video interview with Kyoichi Inoue, one of the first Uchi Deshi of Master Gozo Shioda. Mr. Inoue who helped shape and develop the art of Yoshinkan Aikido was also the head of the Yoshinkan Honbu Dojo for many years. Mr. Inoue granted me the honour of conducting this video interview in April.
I want to give a special thank you to Mr Saburo Takashima who arranged the interview and translated and to Mr Sharon Kobayashi of SGK productions who filmed and edited this video.
Video/DVD: New film featuring O-Sensei
Posted 7/26/2014 11:50am [from Ze'ev Erlich]
Three new films of O-Sensei - discovered in July 2014 (Part 1/3)
A few weeks ago, one of our dojo members came to the dojo with a CD containing a film. To my huge surprise, it was an un-seen-before film of founder of Aikido (Ueshiba Morihei O-Sensei).
Apparently, Yedidya who has a pottery studio was approached by one of his student (Ms. Carole Habib). Her father was a French Aikidoka who was an Air-France pilot and he made frequent flights to Tokyo. In those days, pilots used to stay for about 2 weeks in Japan before returning to France. So, he could practice Aikido at the Hombu Dojo where sometimes O-Sensei used to teach.
Founder of Aikido Ueshiba Morihei O-Sensei
Filmed in 1968 by Mr. Pierre Holzacker at Aikikai Hombu Dojo (Tokyo)
Part 1/3: http://youtu.be/gr3Z5r26R2o
This film was discovered in Israel in 2014 by Ms. Carole Habib -
daughter of Pierre Holzacker - French Air France pilot who practiced Aikido with his wife Esther in France in the 1960'. Pierre and Esther Holzacker were students of the Late Tsuda Itsuo Sensei.

Publication: Aikido in Japan and The Way Less Traveled
Posted 7/07/2014 11:04am [from Steve Earle]
William Gillespie, 5th dan Aikikai and Dojocho of Beijing Aikikai, has written a provocative and entertaining account of his experiences while training at Hombu Dojo in the late 1990s called "Aikido in Japan and The Way Less Traveled." This book will serve as both an introduction for those who have never been to Hombu to the Hombu experience and as an invitation to those who have been there to look for what they might have missed. Gillespie also gives us his views on topics as diverse as Aikido in an MMA world and the origins of BJJ.
