Re: Pre War Aikido, 1930 through Iwama period


I remember meeting Ikkusai Iwata in 1980. He and Rinjiro Shirata were in Paris for an IAF meeting. The IAF has a Superior Council and they took turns to head this body. When O Sensei died in 1969, they both accepted Kisshomaru as Doshu and quietly ran their own dojos/organizations. Like Hikitsuchi, Iwata favoured a white hakama.

Peter do you have a date in mind for your next column?
Well, Jun already has it and so I suppose it will appear with the August columns.
