Minoru Kanetsuka – Important Aspects of Learning – Beginner to Black Belt
6-5 kyu and 4-3 kyu instructional video in two sections. Minoru Kanetsuka (7th dan Aikido Aikikai), technical director of the UK Aikido Federation, demonstrates the technique. He began studying aikido (Yoshinkan style) in 1957 as a student at Takusoku University (Tokyo) under Fujita-sensei and Shioda-sensei. After completing his study, he embarked on an excursion to the east to bring Aikido to the countries of the east. This adventure brought him to Nepal, where he trained the bodyguards of the Nepalese royal family and taught at the police school for eight years.
Kanetsuka-sensei arrived in England in 1972 at the request of Kazuo Chiba (who was then the Technical Director of the Aikikai of Great Britain). Several years later, Kanetsuka-sensei established his own dojo, the “Ryushinkan.”
Kanetsuka-sensei succeeded Chiba-sensei in this position after his return to Japan in 1977.
He is also the Aikido Hombu Dojo’s official representative in England.
The language is English.
