My teacher and close friend of 20 years, Sensei Forrest "Bud" Kassahn passed away on Tuesday. He trained with the likes of Doshu Kisshomary Ueshiba, Tokuji Hirata Sensei, and Frank Doran Shihan. He began his training in 1964 with Tokuji Hirata Sensei and helped many folks to find their way in Aikido over the years...
He was a wonderful man and like a father to me- May he rest in peace and be throwing an endless line of Uke's above.
I miss you and love you Sensei Bud!
My condolences to Kassahn sensei's family, friends, students, and loved ones.

I'm so very sorry. It is hard to lose a teacher and a friend.
