Re: Students of Nishio Sensei

Yasuhiko Takemori Sensei, Aikido 7th Dan Aikikai, Iaido 8th Dan Zenkoku Iaido Renmei.
Quote:
Takemori-sensei came to Sweden for the first time in the early 90īs, at that time he was the assistant of Nishio sensei. He was for a very long time exclusive uke for Nishio sensei at his exhibitions.

Since 1997 Takemori-sensei teaches yearly seminars in Uppsala and Helsinki, and since 2003 he also visits St Petersburg yearly.

Takemori-sensei often uses bokken and jo in his aikido - elements that in his execution perhaps are less traditional from an aikido-historic perspective but nevertheless expresses the principles of aikido very dynamically.

Along with his high rank in aikido, Takemori-sensei also holds 8 dan in iaido (Zen Koku Iaido Renmei). He works at a junior high school where he teaches Japanese literature and foreign relations. He is married and has four sons. He and his family live in Yokosuka near Yokohama.
