I started a new entry on my blog "Nakaima- Aikido in Hawaii. Its on the four senior Aikido Sensei that started in the early 1950's in Hawaii. Yukiso Yamamoto, Isao Takahashi, Kazuto Sugimoto, and Mitsue "Koa" Kimura. There was not much information about these influential Senseis so I tried to gather as much information as possible. If anyone has any information, corrections or has any 2nd hand stories about these Senseis please let me know or post them on the comments. http://jaco1984sky.wordpress.com/2012/07/23/the-early-pioneers-of-aikido-in-hawaii-the-four-sensei-105/

Hey thank you for the compliments. I am hoping to write a detailed account of O Sensei's visit to Hilo in 1961. I found a bunch of pictures and information regarding his visit.

I'll see Sensei tomorrow and pass on your regards Jamie. Keep up the great work. It is needed.
Hope to be out your way sometime next year.
