  1. Stan here. At 1:56 seconds I mistakenly refer to Noriaki Inoue as O-Sensei’s “son.” Actually, he was his nephew, being the son of Morihei’s eldest sister. Sorry for the error!

  2. Dear Stanley Pranin!
    I sorrow but another mistake is here :”…his new book “Aikido Pioneers – Postwar Era.” This 360-page book contains interviews with 20 of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba’s top disciples from the prewar era. Interviews with many famous aikido masters such as Kisshomaru Ueshiba, Koichi Tohei, Gozo Shioda, Kenji Tomiki, Minoru Mochizuki, Noriaki Inoue, and many more are included!..” Because that book is ” Aikido Pioneers – PREWAR Era”, not “…postwar era”.
    Excuse me!

  3. Do I really say that? It’s probably because I am working on volume 2 right now which will indeed be titled “Aikido Pioneers – Postwar Era!” Sorry!

  4. It will be great! I’m looking forward your volume II. Thank you very much for your hard work!
