1966 Kauai Aikido instuctor seminar

In 1966 Kauai hosted the statewide Aikido seminar. The Chief instructor of Kauai was Ichiro Ishii 2nd dan. This was the 4th statewide seminar held in Hawaii. The Seminar was most likely led by Chief Instructor Yukiso Yamamoto as Koichi Tohei Sensei was not present in the picture. Of note, a young Yoshimitsu Yamada sensei is sitting to the right of Yamamoto Sensei. Yamada Sensei did a short tour of the islands in 1966 before returning to New York.
