Fuchu Aikido CLub
This may seem far fetched but I am looking for pictures of the Fuchu Aikido Club around the year 1960. My grandfather studied there and he recently passed away and I am trying to collect as much Aikido stuff related to him as I can. If you can be any help I would appreciate it.

What Fuchu are you talking about? Do you mean Fuchu-Machi Japan?

AJ Beaupre 12-19-2001 10:31 AM

Yeah, it was an Aikido club by the Air-Force Base in Japan

I don't know where that is, or if we still have a base nearby, but if we do you could try writing to the base historian to see if they have pictures (they might if it was affiliated with the base); you might also try The Air Force Times, they have a column where folks write trying to find retired service members, get old pictures, etc.; last but not least, the local VFW or VA organizations might be able to put you in touch with ex-club members.
Good luck

I currently live in Fuchu-machi.... but I don't know of any airforce bases in or near our town. Maybe it's gone or there is more than one Fuchu.

Thanks for your help! The area would be Tachikawa (pardon my spelling). It was Fuchu Air Force Base. Green Park was the area he studied Aikido at. Again, thanks for all your help.

Hmmm... sounds like I`m in the wrong Fuchu.
