The 2nd President of Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai
Born in Kyoto on May 8, 1865, Juzaburo Ushida graduated from the 12th class of the Japanese Naval Academy in 1882 and achieved the rank of Captain on August 05, 1905 and the rank of Rear Admiral on December 1, 1911. Rear Admiral Ushida joined the reserves (semi-retirement) on May 31, 1913 and officially retired on May 08, 1926. Juzaburo Ushida passed away on March 22, 1935 at the age of 69. In 1894, at the height of the 1st Japanese War with China, Lieutenant Ushida traveled to England and in 1898, as a Lieutenant Commander he spent several months in the U.S.
It is generally acknowledged that Juzaburo Ushida was the 2nd President of the Usui Reiki Ryoho Gakkai (most likely serving in that capacity after the death of Dr. Usui in 1926 until his death) although some Reiki historians claim that Mikao Usui never acted in that capacity and that Admiral Ushida was actually the first Gakkai president. Admiral Ushida also trained Vice Admiral Hoichi Wanami, who later became the 5th President of the Gakkai. Juzaburo Ushida is also the author of the inscription on the Usui Memorial at Saihoji Memorial Park in Tokyo.
