    Kyoichi Inoue (10th dan, Yoshinkan) Passes Away
    From: Jun Akiyama posted on 24. Dec 2017, 03:38pm

    I have received word that Kyoichi Inoue (10th dan, Yoshinkan Aikido) has passed away. Born in 1935, he started training at the newly founded Aikido Yoshinkan in 1955, becoming uchideshi under Gozo Shioda. He taught metropolitan police officers as a martial arts instructor from 1970 until 1994. Inoue became the second director of the Yoshinkan in 2002. He received his 9th dan from Shioda in 1992 and his 10th dan in 2009 from the International Budo Federation. My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
