It is difficult to say when he started Aiki Jutsu, because he was born in Budo Family. His father taught him Judo and chiropractic techniques, one of his uncles taught him Go Ju Ryu Karate and one of his grandfather s taught him Aiki Jutsu and Aiki Do.

Grandfather –Takuma Hisa (1895-1979) – was a great master of Daito Ryu Aiki Jutsu and the founder of  Takuma-kai in Japan. Aiki Jutsu was a part of his Budo education in his childhood.
