Shihan Profile : Iwatani Kosaku Sensei PDF Print E-mail

In recent correspondences with Komenoi Sensei, we were pleased to learn the identity of his Aikido mentor in the person of Sensei Iwakiri Kosaku (岩切光作).  Moreso, we are further elated to learn from Sensei Ito of Aikikai that Sensei Iwakiri is still an active instructor in his own dojo.

Through a short anecdote posted in an article in Aikido Tansaku volume 41, we catch a glimpse of his beginnings as a student of O-Sensei. (From: Twitter - morihei_bot)

坂戸合気会会長岩切光作「昭和31年18歳で本部道場に初めて行った時玄関に開祖が居られて、開祖と知らずに『合気道を見学したいんですけど』と言うとポンポンと手を叩いて人を呼び『この子を道場に連れて行きなさい』。気が付いたら古い道着を渡され稽古していた」『合気道探究』41号50p

Chief Iwakiri Kosaku, Head of Sakado Aikido Association, relates : In Showa 31 (1956) when I was 18 years old, i made my first visit to Honbu dojo when the founder O-Sensei happened to be at the entrance area.  Not knowing who he was at the time, I politely asked him "I would like to take a look at Aikido".  No sooner had I said that when he clapped his hands and instructed someone saying "Bring this young one to the dojo.".  Before i knew it, I was already attending keiko wearing an old dogi that was handed to me.  (From Aikido Tansaku, vol 41, p 40)
