I joined Kotekitai in 1968 and played at monthly meetings,. conventions, parades, Tozana and EXPO 70 I played the flute, piccolo and saxe . I am so grateful to Ms Inowashi and the other leaders for their time and efforts. I have tried to care for my members the way they trained me by example.

Dear Angels around the world,

Wish you all always in good health and high spirit, i participated in Kotekitai Malaysia since 1983. I'm glad to have a chance here to have an mutual exchange and encouragement with the sis of myoho around the world.

Dear Kumi,
If i'm not mistaken, you can find the history of kotekitai from the New Human Revolution in Chapter " Mission".

i seen a post from erica shaw, she is asking why did Sensei establish Kotekitai?
anyone know where we can read the history of kotekitai being established. I'm sure it's in the human revolution.

Hello everyone, I paticipated in Kotekitai Thailand since 2004 until now ^O^
First, I played Fife until Culture Festival in Thailand finished. Later, I shift to play trumpet and now I take care everybody in this part. My intentions for Kotekitai Thailand are always create new leader, cultivate everymind to realize the real mission and I gonna be the great model for members of Kotekitai Thailand. "Encourage & Give Happiness people" Seniors always say this. ;')

Hazel...Thank you soooo much for the Angels of Peace document! I have been looking for that for some time. I will send it on, and I know many others will appreciate it. It means a lot to mean...learned it in the 70s in LA Kotekitai, and it is so true...we continue to carry out that mission today. ALL THE BEST!! Beth

Hello to all my fellow Myoho sisters and former Kotekitai! I pined to be in Kotekitai when I was 12. They finally let me join and I played Glockenspiel since I had piano training they thought it was easiest for me. Plus the Glockenspiel group leader was Sarah formerly Gonzales (divored and forgot her maiden name) who was my friend for many years. That was in 1980-1981. I eventually became drum corp leader and we became really good under training from Kazuko Hines who was in Fuji Kotekitai. She gave us really good drum cadences and formations. I feel this was the best time in Kotekitai in Chicago. We were going to the public parks to practice marching after doing Gongyo at the Kaikan. We went to many conventions, in St. Louis when the lion fell asleep (lol) and Dallas, and playing in Madison Square Garden in NY. Not many people can say they played Madison Square Garden! Training was very hard with lots of obstacles and Sansho Shima. I also played with Fuji Kotekitai on Tozan. That was the tozan when they had a Tsunami or hurricane and we could not get to see the Dai-Gohonzon that year. Those are my memories of Kotekitai. By the way, I still have my Glockenspiel and snare drum somewhere in my basement!

I was a Los Angeles Kotekitai member from 1987 through 2000. I first played the fife then when the drill team was formed I was its first member. I later became the vice drill team chief. It was such amazing training I received as the core development of my life. I'm still friends with several people and we keep in touch.

Hi everybody! I participated in Kotekitai in Hawaii (81-86) and in Utah (86-92) although I really couldn't play an instrument but I sure knew how to march! I think this helped me in drill and ceremony in the military though. I remember lots of conventions, parades and even a rendition of 'surfin usa' on the clarinet.
