Re: Kensho Furuya Sensei Passes Away

Although we never met in person, or even communicated very extensively on the internet (twice giving me great advice, and once thwacking me for being whiny and misguided - all valuable), through even those few encounters Kensho Furuya struck me as a great aikido instructor and thinker who has led a devoted and remarkable life. I can only imagine, then, the impact he had on his students, with whom he trained and spoke every day. They are very fortunate.

I have no doubt his students will go on to do amazing things. His book remains one of the best I have ever read on the subject of aikido and budo. It sounds like he has achieved just the legacy he spoke of seeking.
