Norihiko Ichihashi Sensei, 8th dan, was one of the senior instructors at the Aikikai Hombu Dojo from the 1970s until his untimely passing in 2001.

A powerfully built man, he demonstrates a soft, yet powerful technique with a minimal of physical exertion. His effortless performance is a model of poise and blending. Ichihashi Sensei was very well-liked by all who knew him. We honor his memory by posting this video permanently on the Aikido Journal Members Site.
