Akira Tohei?

Hello...just a quick question. Was Akira Tohei related to Koichi Tohei in any way?

Re: Akira Tohei?

No relation, except maybe extremely distant cousins, much like any two people named Jones (or Hall). It is a coincidence that they were born nine years apart in the same province. Koichi Tohei Sensei was also one of Akira Sensei's earliest instructors at Hombu.

Re: Akira Tohei?

From what I have been told, there was no relationship between their families at all.
