Hi there!

What famous Aikidoka do you know of? Steven Seagal obviously, but other then that? I've heard that Sean Connery has studied Aikido, and also Chuck Norris. I've also heard that Bruce Lee practised for Koichi Tohei for a short period. Can anyone confirm any of this? And better yet, provied me with more famous people?

Best wishes,

Patrik

PS. I mean people that non-aikidoka might know of. So O'sensei isn't a good answer in this case. ;)

The late, great James Coburn was supposed to be a aikidoka.

And for the Aikikai folks :) , the Japanese Prime Minister Toshiki Kaifu.

Of course, there was also Hideki Tojo...
