On Monday June 6th and Wednesday June 8th, the Nu’uanu Aikido Club will host Kunio Yoshimoto Sensei 7th Dan. Yoshimoto Sensei is from Hakone, Shiga, Japan. He studied under Shoji Nishio Sensei for 40 years.
Yoshimoto Shihan is traveling with a few students and has been invited to Honolulu to share his Aikido experience with us. There will be no mat fees. We would like to have as many students as possible to share in this training.
This is an excellent opportunity for all of our Aikido students and instructors in Hawaii. We ask everyone to please share this opportunity.
Hope to see everyone there,

May 19th 2011 five years ago today Koichi Tohei passed away. Tohei Sensei had a very profound influence on Aikido in Hawaii, teaching us to look beyond techniques and into ourselves. Here at the Nuuanu Aikido Club his influence is still felt today within our warm up exercises which where handed down to us from Tohei Sensei himself. In his teaching he said not to criticize others but learn from them, better ourselves and in turn help to further Aikido. Tohei Sensei contributions to our club and Aikido are beyond measure.
"Do not criticize any other martial arts or speak ill of others, as it will surely come back to you. The mountain does not laugh at the river because it is lowly, nor does the river speak ill of the mountain because it can not move" Koichi Tohei
Join us on June 6th and June 8th, 7.30- 8.30pm, at the Nuuanu Aikido Club.
