Does Koichi Tohei Sensei still teach? I thought I had read a recent interview with him in which he stated that he was essentially retired and was preparing to name his son as the new head of his style and organization. I could (very easily) be wrong, though.
Yes.
Being 80 he doesn't travel much anymore.

His son, Shinichi, is currently director of overseas programs.

Both he and his son will be in Maui,
Hawaii in March, 2001 to celebrate
the grand opening of the Maui dojo,
to teach a 3 day seminar, and to hold the national chief instructor's conference.
