Maruyama Sensei and Homma Kancho.

For the past few years it has been a tradition for Maruyama Sensei, Founder of Kokikai Aikido to come to Nippon Kan for a visit in November. Homma Kancho has known Maruyama Sensei for over forty three years; since the time Homma Kancho was in middle school in Japan.

Maruyama Sensei is a Japanese Aikikai pioneer instructor and has played an important role in the foundation of Aikido in the United States. Currently Maruyama Sensei is an active instructor in Kokikai Aikido world-wide. We were happy to have Maruyama Sensei stop by Denver and Nippon Kan on one of his yearly tours of the United States.
