Yoshio Sugino (杉野嘉男, Sugino Yoshio, December 12, 1904 – June 13, 1998) was a Japanese martial artist and film choreographer.
Jigoro Kano, the founder of judo, introduced Sugino to the Katori Shinto-ryu school of kenjutsu in 1927. Sugino also started studying Yoshin Koryu under Genro Kanaya around this time. He met aikido’s founder Morihei Ueshiba in the early 1930s, and studied aikido sufficiently to gain a teaching license and open an Aikikai-affiliated dojo by 1935. By the 1940s he was teaching kenjutsu, aikido, judo and naginatajutsu full-time.
In 1953, Sugino was asked to provide sword instruction for the actors in Akira Kurosawa’s film, Seven Samurai.
