"We must keep the spirit of budo no matter how we practice."

Q: You were one of the earlier uchideshi at the Aikikai. What year did you start?

A: When I joined as an uchideshi only Tamura Sensei and Arikawa Sensei were there. Yasuo Kobayashi was still in college. He came to the dojo every day. I entered when I was 17. I am 53 now, so it must have been 1955.
