I wanted to find out if anyone knows if there is video out there of the senior members of the Hawaii Ki Society (Seiichi Suzuki Sensei, Takashi Nonaka Sensei , Seichi Tabata Sensei, Harry Ito sensei , Clayton Naluai Sensei , Hajime Uyeki Sensei , etc ). I also wanted to find out if anyone has experience training with them, what they would emphasize during training and general aikido style.
Thank you

The only one I took classes from was Clayton Naluai. Ex singer for the band - the Surfers. He's an excellent speaker. Very motivating and captivating. When I took a class at his dojo there wasn't many techniques taught but a lot of good lessons. Once we invited him to teach a seminar at our dojo and the focus was on ki tests with a few techniques at the end.

The only video I have of him is already on youtube:



Excellent instructor and I'd highly recommend taking a class from him if you can. I heard he's retired now though.

Yes ive heard a lot about naluai sensei , I hope to meet him sometime for an interview in the near future. Im curious about Suzuki sensei ive heard many a story about him and would like to hear more , also locally here Takashi Nonaka Sensei has done a lot of traveling to seminars all over the united states it too bad there doesn't seem to be any videos of these senseis teaching.
