Yasumasa Itoh, Rokudan, Chief Instructor

Yasumasa Itoh Sensei currently holds a sixth degree black belt in Aikido. He began his Aikido training in 1973, at the Musashi University Aikido club in Tokyo, under the instruction of Norihiko Ichihashi Shihan. He went on to become captain of the club. Following his graduation in 1978, Itoh Sensei came to Boston, where he began studying under Mitsunari Kanai Shihan. A dear friend and confidante of the late Kanai Shihan (who passed in March, 2004), Itoh Sensei joined with other senior instructors to spread Kanai Shihan's style and interpretation of Aikido. Recently he has joined Lesley University to teach Aikido in their physical education program.
