This is an email I got today:
dear mumei aikidokas, friends
Very sad news today came from Padang in Sumatra, Indonesia. Through the Wednesday earthquake Padang Dojo that was only open last February collapsed during the class and many people got injured. Tomyono--sensei passed away during evacuation. He was trying to save his students smashed by ruins.
Some pictures from the news channels:
Last exam notes at Padang Dojo:
The Padang city is under restricted access now. You can only help praying.
Will try to keep you updated..
