During the 1950's Tomiki Sensei was teaching at Waseda University and developing his style of Aikido, Was there already an aikikai Aikido Club at Waseda University at the same time?

Shizuo Imaizumi Sensei (my teacher), Akira Kuwamori, Tsuyoshi Takahashi, Tadaharu Wakabayashi, and Kinichi Iwasaki started the Waseda University Aikikai Aikido club in the spring of 1960 with the permission of Kisshomaru Ueshiba and under the direction of Hiroshi Tada Sensei.
