Masahilo Nakazono Shihan - rare 1968 video find.

Aikido Ellis Video Channel

I am personally very pleased to have found this very rare 10 min video from the late 1960's of the late Masahilo Nakazono Shihan.
Great quality video of the first Japanese Aikido teacher to be invited to teach Aikido in Britain by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei in 1963. Haydn Foster, Henry Ellis and Derek Eastman are all very proud to have been graded to dan grade by this great Budo Master in 1963 - 1966.

Masahilo Nakazono Sensei 1918 - 1994
Henry Ellis visited Nakazono Sensei at his home in Sante Fe New Mexico USA in 1992. Masahilo Nakazono Sensei passed away in 1994. In October 2007 a great memorial celebration event was held at Neath Wales UK. We were very proud to have Nakazono Sensei's son Jiro Nakazono represent the Nakazono family on this special day. The last three pioneers of Abbe Sensei and British Aikido attended as follows Sensei's H Foster - H Ellis - D Eastman................
