Bob Gibbon sensei (5th dan, Australia Aikido Kenkyu kai) recently
passed away aged 45. A sevice was held in Newcastle on Saturday, June 22nd.
Bob Gibbon sensei was a founding member of Aikido Kenkyu Kai International, and a long time
student of Yoshinobu Takeda shihan, Aiki kai Kamakura. Many students of Aikido and also people of other martial arts are left with a sense of great remorse after losing such a wonderful and gifted personality.
"Our Universe is blessed with the birth of another bright star". God bless you Bob Gibbon.
