YouTube: Shigeho Tanaka (9th dan)

Born in 1928, Tanaka trained in kendo as a child then studied aikido with Morihei and Kisshomaru Ueshiba as well as Kashima Shinryu under Zenya Kunii. He was also one of the early postwar students of Gozo Shioda at the Yoshinkan aikido dojo in the 1950's. He formed the Tokyo University aikido club in 1954 and also served as shihan at Chuo University, Senshu University, University of Toyama, and others. He received his 8th dan in 1973 and 9th dan in 1993 and now serves as the honorary director at the Shiseikan at the Meiji Jingu shrine.

This video clip is reportedly from a TV documentary.
