Re: Information on Katsumi Niikura

Wow, touchy subject Johnny? No, he is not affilitated with the Hombu so he does not have a registration number. He studied there in the late 60's early 70's. I know that he had to meet with Osensei before he could start because that is how it was done while Osensei was still in charge. When he left the Hombu, he did not want to open, or teach an aikikai school. He wanted to teach karate and aikido. I don't think he wanted anything to do with the politics at the time either. I directed Jun to call him because he could get much more out of a conversation than I could ever hope to because he speaks Japanese!! Then Jun could post what he found out and his view point.
