Bernie Lau is back living in Hilo, and was one of those students in the early days of aikido. He toured around the islands with Tohei since his mother and father knew Nonaka and Nagata. If you want to talk to Bernie, drop me an email, and I'll hook the two of you up. yamamoto.neil(fill in the blank)gmail.com

You have Quintin Chambers of TSKSR and SMR who was a friend of Donn Draegers and spent many years in Japan. I believe he did Aikido as well. Then you have Wayne Muramoto of Furyu Magazine. And Menkyo in Takeouchi ryu and he also does MJER. I think he did Aikido as well. History of aikido on the island? It would be a major mistake not to talk to these guys. They are so rare that they are in a club of something like half a dozen men on earth. Dan

Hawaii will always have many good aikido practitioners. The problem was and is, they never speak about themselves. By default, they are secretive, Interview all of the Aikido & Ju Jitsu Schools in Hawaii. If they kept old pictures, you will find many of them.
