Yoichiro Inoue: Aikido's Forgotten Pioneer

Noriaki Inoue (1902-12-03, Tanabe – 1994-04-13, Kunitachi) was a Japanese martial artist, who was in his early years closely associated with the spiritual and technical development of aikido along with his uncle Morihei Ueshiba. Inoue is the founder of Shinwa Taidō, a martial art which he later renamed to Shin'ei Taidō.

I think He was interviewed by "Stanley Pranin" in 1987 if im not mistaken. starting in 1942 through about 1955, Morihei was in semi-retirement in the village of Iwama in Ibaragi Prefecture. After the war, Yoichiro was active in Tokyo where he began instructing U.S. Air Force officers. Later, after the Korean War, he operated a dojo in Yoyogi Hachiman in which both enlisted men and officers trained. He called his art “Aiki Budo,” preserving use of the prewar name of the art. Inoue even traveled to Hawaii, Los Angeles and Mexico on two trips in mid-1950s and early 1960s. In 1956, he gave a public demonstration at the Yomiuri Hall and starting calling his art Shinwa Taido. Some years after that he began calling his art Shin’ei Taido, which is still the name used today.

Is He some how connected to Aikido and His relatives, until today?

You can read part of the interview on aikidojournal.com. You'll need a subscription to read it in its entirety.

He's a nephew of O'sensei and he and his family played a large role in the events that shaped O'sensei's life and eventually Aikido.

AikidoJournal is the place for historical references. Aikiweb is for what's happening now IMO. Besides, quite a few folks from aikiweb will kindly direct you in the right direction so the info does not really need to all be lumped here.
