Tetsuo Hoshi in the February 7th 1940 issue of the Nippon Jiji demonstrating the new martial art "Kobu" (”Imperial Art of War" - AKA, Morihei Ueshiba's Aiki Budo) at the Kodokan (then in Koishikawa). Tetsuo Hoshi returned his sixth dan to the Kodokan after meeting Morihei Ueshiba and becoming his student. He was executed in Singapore as a war criminal in 1947 after using his martial arts training to torture prisoners of war. He appears briefly in "Aikido Shihan Sadao Takaoka – Meeting O-Sensei", on the Aikido Sangenkai blog:
