Bio of Katsuyuki Kondo
Katsuyuki Kondo was born in Tokyo in 1945. He began his training in Daito-ryu aikijujutsu as a teenager under Tsunejiro Hosono and later Kotaro Yoshida, a friend and senior in Daito-ryu to Morihei Ueshiba. With an introduction from Yoshida, Kondo made periodic visits to Hokkaido starting in 1961 to practice under Tokimune Takeda Sensei, son of Sokaku Takeda. He continued his training under the Daito-ryu headmaster for 32 years.
Tokimune certified Kondo as a Daito-ryu instructor (kyoju dairi) in 1974. In 1988, Kondo was awarded the menkyo kaiden by Tokimune and also appointed Soke Dairi (representative of the headmaster). Kondo currently operates the Shimbukan Dojo in Tokyo which has functioned as the Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu Hombu Dojo since shortly after Tokimune Takeda’s passing. Kondo is also one of Japan’s leading authorities on swordsman, calligrapher, and Zen master Tesshu Yamaoka.
