HAWAII AIKIKAI FOUNDATION

Since 1953 HAWAII AIKIKAI is the seminal Aikido Organization in Hawaii, originally dedicated to the teachings and education of Aikido to improve a healthy life style. The HAK ACADEMY DOJO on Waialae Avenue was blessed by the Founder, MoriheiUeshiba, (O-Sensei), to promote Aikido as a synthesis of his martial studies, philosophy and religious beliefs; with a primary goal to overcome oneself instead of cultivating violence or aggressiveness.

Hawaii AikiKai Legacy
Aikido in Hawaii

The history of Aikido in Hawaii starts with the Hawaii Nishikai Health Organization that was founded in Japan by Dr. Katsuzo Nishi. This organization included the following key members: Dr. Norito Fujioka, Dr. Harry I.Kurisaki and Mr. Noriyasu Kagesa who were instrumental to the advent of Aikido in the Hawaiian Islands. In February of 1953, the Hawaii Nishikai Health Organization arranged for Koichi Tohei Sensei to participate in a demonstration of Japanese Budo. This was held at the Kawananakoa Intermediate School’s auditorium. Tohei Sensei’s demonstration of this unique art of self-defense mesmerized those fortunate enough to attend and soon many prominent practitioners of other Japanese Budo joined Hawaii Nishikai Health members as dedicated students of Aikido. As a member of the Hawaii Nishikai Health Organization and a practitioner of Aikido, Mr. Noriyasu Kagesa graciously offered the use of his Shinonome Rainbow Garden Teahouse for the group’s first practices. The facility was one of humble beginnings without matted floors or changing rooms. Students were unified in their purpose: training purely for physical well-being. Such beginnings established the foundation for the first Aikido dojo outside of Japan.
