A regular to Brisbane and especially Byron bay, Kataoka Sensei brought us everything we thought Aikido could be. A quiet refined gentleman with a gentle smile and aikido that gave you the feeling of a samurai hiding behind a shoji.
For many years he was the director of Kiatsu and is now the head instructor of the Shin Shin Toitsu Aikido and the Ki no Kenkyukai (Ki Society) in Japan.
