Hanshi Kiyoyuki Terada
Hanshi Kiyoyuki Terada (in the center sitting) during his visit in Russia. 12.06.2001.
It was with sadness that I was informed of the passing away of the great Aikido Master Kiyoyuki Terada Hanshi on July 13th 2009, we the Misogikan send our condolences to his family, students and friends.
I remember the wonderful warm moments that I have spent with him both in Japan and here in Russia , his contribution to the development of Yoshinkan Aikido world wide was of great importance and it was his drive and natural charisma as co-founder of the Yoshinkan that helped set the Yoshinkan on its path to international recognition.
I have selected a few photographs of Terada Hanshi taken both in Japan and Russia which you may like to look at, each shows a special moment in his company.
