Koichi Tohei in Hawaii

Koichi Tohei in Hawaii

This is an interesting photo of the famous Koichi Tohei Sensei as he appeared instructing a class in Hawaii c. 1962. Tohei was the first to introduce aikido to Hawaii in 1953 and deserves much of the credit for the spread of the art in the mainland USA as well. He established his own Shinshin Toitsu Aikido organization in 1974 after having been part of the Aikikai Hombu Dojo for many years. Tohei is one of the featured instructors in the Aikido Classics DVD available through this website.
