Jei Nakazono Sensei

I am sorry to report the recent passing of Jei Nakazono Sensei. gone too soon and too suddenly.
Jei Nakazono Sensei was the youngest son of Mutsuro ` Masahilo ` Nakazono 7th dan Aikido a early direct student of OSensei Ueshiba, also 6th dan Kodokan Judo. Jei followed his father and past family generations in the study and teaching of natural medicine and healing.

On the 17th of October 2007 we, the dan grades from the 1950s/60s held a large fully booked facility in Neath South Wales to hold the " Masahilo Nakazono Memorial Event " M Nakazono Sensei was the first Aikido instructor invited to the UK by Kenshiro Abbe Sensei 1959/1960, we, the first group of five British Aikido dan grades considered M Nakazono Sensei one of the greatest of all the Japanese teachers we would later study with.

Jei Nakazono Sensei came from New York USA to the UK to attend the event to honour his father, many UK students will have fond memories of that day and Sensei's high standard of teaching .
Another visiting instructor from California USA was Dang Phong Sensei another very talented teacher, the teachers on the day were Sensei's - Jei Nakazono - Dang Phong - Henry Ellis - Derek Eastman -Haydn Foster - Gwynn Jones, the guest of honour was the recently late Gerry Gyngell sensei.

R.I.P My dear friend Jei Nakazono Sensei
