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................

That's from Nakazono Sensei's seminar in Lerum, Sweden, 1969. A classic. Olle DehlÚn, one of the seniors of Swedish aikido, filmed it. He has put a lot of his aikido films - old as well as recent - on YouTube:

Thanks Stefan for confirming the year and venue.
I did place a credit on my video site to Olle DehlÚn for this film, which is very important for me personally, there are very few videos of Nakazono Sensei. Sensei's son Jiro Nakazono told me there were some, yet he did not know where they were, he was pleased to see this one.
Regards

Henry Ellis

Beautiful, dynamic aikido by Nakazono Sensei! It is so nice that these rare clips are being made available to the public. Also some wonderful footage of Tomita Sensei and Ichimura Sensei - as well as great ukemi by the resident Swedish aikidoka! And all this happening 40 years ago!

In aiki,

Ethan Weisgard
