Background of Imaizumi Shihan - Chief Instructor Shin Budo Kai

Imaizumi Shihan has practiced Aikido since 1959. In 1965 as Sandan he became part of the teaching staff at Hombu Dojo and frequently took ukemi for Morehei Ueshiba the Founder of Aikido ( O-Sensei or Great Teacher). After O-Sensei's death in 1969, Imaizumi Shihan was chosen to accompany Waka-Sensei (the son of O-Sensei) and his wife to enshrine the remains of O-Sensei at the Ueshiba family grave in Tanabe. In 1972 he was instructed by Koichi Tohei 10th Dan then head instructor of Aikido Hombu Dojo to go to Los Angeles to teach Aikido and Ki-principles with Roderick T. Kobayashi Sensei, Chief Instructor of the Western States Aikido Federation. In 1974 Imaizumi joined Tohei Sensei's Ki Society, becoming Chief Instructor of the US Ki Society in 1975. In 1987 Imaizumi resigned from the Ki Society and a year later founded Shin Budo Kai ("True Martial Way"). Imaizumi Shihan continues to follow the teachings he received from O-Sensei along with his own perspectives.

Dozens of hotel options are in the Woodlands located 35 miles North of Houston Tx. Woodlands Waterway complex and Lake Woodlands have lots of activities (golf, kayak, shopping) if spouses and kids want to come along for a mini vacation. We are working to reserve a block of rooms at the Hilton Garden Inn- please let Black Sensei know if you're interested so we can negotiate the rate.
