Soshu Koichi Tohei Sensei
He graduated from the Economics Department of Keio University. When he was young, he suffered from pleurisy and he was very weak. Determined to strengthen both mind and body, he undertook intensive training in Zen meditation and Misogi breathing methods. At the age of 19 he began the study of Aikido under the founder Morihei Ueshiba Sensei and ultimately achieved the highest level of 10th Dan. After the war, he studied mind and body unification from Tempu Nakamura Sensei. From , he traveled alone all around the world and spread Aikido, starting with the United States of America.
Koichi Tohei: Aikido Comes to Hawaii
Between and the opening of the Honolulu Aiki Dojo in Aikido experienced an explosive growth in the Hawaiian islands — the Hawaii Aikido groups were even able to raise funds to send to Japan for the repair of the Aikikai hombu dojo, which had been damaged in the bombing of Tokyo during WWII. However, I could not just hold onto this feeling of lost hope. Thoughts of loss just give rise to negative thoughts and do not produce anything of meaning. For that reason, I urgently felt that Japanese must once again engage in questions of the spirit.
He trained hard and his body prospered, but soon after he began his pre-college studies at Keio University , he developed a case of pleurisy. This forced Tohei to take a year off. Tohei was distressed at the thought of losing his newfound strength of body and his means of training it, so he decided to replace his judo studies with Zen meditation and misogi exercises, learned at the Ichikukai Dojo in Tokyo. As with his judo studies, Tohei entered the training of the mind with fervor and soon excelled despite his serious health issues. After his recovery from pleurisy, Tohei became convinced that it was his efforts in training his mind and cultivating his ki that had helped him to heal and recover. After recovering from pleurisy he returned to judo, but Tohei wanted more than just physical training and did not think that judo was the right art for him to practise, although he did continue studying judo until he started aikido.
