Tempu Nakamura

In 1911, Nakamura, while on his way back to Japan, met a philosopher in Egypt called Kaliapa, who took him to Kangchenjunga, the third-highest mountain in the world, found between Nepal and India.

He stayed there studying and practising yoga for nearly 3 years, which cured his illness. He practised unique versions of Raja Yoga and Karma Yoga with Kaliapa.

Through meditation he attained spiritual enlightenment.

After finally returning to Japan, he served as president of the Tokyo Industrial Bank, among other business activities. He established his own medical and philosophical organization, and named it Tempukai in 1940.

In Japan, he was a prolific writer on philosophy and entrepreneurship.

Tempu developed a self-improvement system called Shin Shin Toitsu Do based on elements of yoga, martial arts and other oriental disciplines. Over 100,000 students from all walks of life, throughout Japan were directly taught by Nakamura Sensei.

He remained active as the head of this organization until his death at age 92.
Nakamura was an acquaintance of Morihei Ueshiba, the founder of Aikido.

His importance, lies in the fact that the aikido of Koichi Tohei, Hiroshi Tada, Tadashi Abe, and others was heavily influenced by Tempu Nakamura's concepts and exercises.

Aikido master Koichi Tohei, went on to found Shin shin toitsu Aikido based on his studies with Morihei Ueshiba and Tempu Nakamura.

Morihei Ueshiba developed Aikido from his combat studies of Daito-ryu Aikijujutsu with Sokaku Takeda, and his spiritual studies with the Omoto Kyo and Onisaburi Deguchi.
