Masando Sasaki Shihan was an enigma. An unrepentant loyalist to the Japanese traditions, he employed his irreverent style of humor and sharp political commentary to spice up his classes at Aikikai's Hombu Dojo. Even with one eye, he could perceive more than most, seeing opportunity along with danger. He will be truly missed. May his family and friends remember him kindly, as he rests in peace.
