Autobiography of Rod Omoto

ByCharlotte OmotoRod Omoto

Surrounded by the total devastation in Hiroshima in August1945, Lieutenant Nobuto Omoto asked his ragtag group of young boys and old infirm men if they had a home. “Hai, hai, hai” they all replied, so he told them to go. Then he was all alone. How did a happy-go-lucky kid born in Wahiawa, Hawaii in 1918 land in this predicament? This is the story of how Roderick Nobuto Omoto, the happy-go-lucky kid, was sent from Hawaii after high school graduation to attend the premier martial arts school in Japan, Budo Senmon Gakko, Busen. There he lived adjacent to the Dojo and the head kendo instructor’s home and learned kendo. What he learned at Busen served him well when he was drafted into the Japanese army in WWII. This book chronicles his growth in kendo from Busen to after the war, and to the twilight of his life, to where he considered the sword that makes life, Katsu Jin Ken.
