The Shijuhosho Award
In the book "Budo: Teachings of the Founder of Aikido" is said that Morihei Ueshiba and Yosaburo Uno, a 10 Dan Kyudo (Japanese archery) master, were decorated by the Emperor of Japan, Hirohito, with the Shijuhosho (Purple Ribbon Medal) award in 1960.
I've only found only three people from the world of martial arts had the same honour: judo master Kyuzo Mifune and kendo masters Kinnosuke Ogawa and Seiji Mochida.
Anyone knows about other martial artists who had received this award?
