I recently discovered Otani Yoshiteru sensei. He is the founder of the New York Budokai. He is a teacher of Muso Shinden Ryu iaido. I am also told he is a very good friend of Hatsumi sensei. Can any one shed any knowledge on their relationship or share anything about him?

I was hoping someone else would reply, but here is what little I know. Otani sensei was introduced by Soke at the Washington, DC Tai Kai I was at in 1993. Soke remarked that Otani was a master of Iaido and that they were friends. Otani did a short demonstration of Iaido at the Tai Kai. This is all I remember. Maybe someone else can add more.

Hello Ulysses,

Back in the Mid-1980's Hatsumi Sensei wrote articles for Ninja Magazine (remember that?). As I recall, David Weiss (Editor) told me that Sensei asked him to use Otai as Translator as they were friends and he felt that Otani could translate the material well.

In addition, at the Tai Kai I remember Hatsumi Sensei mentioning some very high praise of Otani's sword ability.

Regards,
Joe

Otani was the founder of my dojo, New York Budokai.

if you have any questions about him you can contact Sensei Phil Ortiz who now runs the school.

he could answer your questions.
