Sadateru Arikawa (1930-2003) was one of the first generation of Aikikai instructors of the postwar era. He was known for his powerful technique and many feared to train with him for this reason. A rather enigmatic character, Arikawa Sensei was an avid reader and collector, and possessed an encyclopedic knowledge of Japanese martial arts. He was instrumental behind the scenes in disseminating information about the philosophy and technique of Aikido Founder Morihei Ueshiba mainly through early issues of the Aikikai newspaper beginning in 1959. Prefering to avoid the limelight, Arikawa Sensei was a staunch supporter of the Ueshiba family and the Aikikai Hombu Dojo. Though a hugely important person in postwar aikido, little is known about him in the aikido community.
