Fugaku ITO

Instructor and technical adviser.

Drawn to is issues of peace and justic ice since his boyhood in Hiroshima, H.F. Ito found in martial arts a way to unify body and mind, reduce contradictions between thought and deed, and improve communication. In the 1990s, as he became increasingly concerned about human violence toward others, toward the earth, and toward ourselves, he expanded his teaching to include workshops for caregivers to AIDS patients. Those grew into what he calls “peace and health activism” workshops which he presents around the world.

In 2002, to further develop this side of his teaching, H.F. Ito began the study of Wu style Tai Chi. He finds Tai Chi a natural next step, as its movement and energetic principles fit it synergistically with his long-term practice of karate and Shintaido. Tai Chi's emphasis on gentle focus, relaxed movement, and quiet strength also support his ongoing teaching in the fields of peace and health education.

H.F. Ito studies with the Tai Chi Japanese Masters Yasuhiko Ishihara, Tomoji Miyamoto, Yoshikazu Asano as well as their teacher Master Ma Chang-Xyn of Beijing, who traces his lineage directly to Wu Chuan-you, the founder of Wu Style TAI CHI. In 2007, H.F. Ito has been honoured to be invited to participate to intensive classes with the most advanced students of Master Ma in Beijin who has accredited him.

The teaching of H.F. Ito is as welcoming to the beginners as stimulating to the advanced practionners. He emphasis the gentle focus and fluid movements.
