Re: Yoshi Kuroiwa Sensei Passes Away

Profound condolences to the Kuroiwa family, and to all his faithful students and peers. The Aikido world has truly lost one of it giants, not only in proven ability, but in the example he consistently set as a true gentleman of Aiki.

His reservoir of kindness and consideration knew no limits, and his personality made you feel special in his presence.

The time he took to counsel me at a Colorado summer camp literally changed my thinking and image of myself for the better.

Sensei, makoto ni arigatoo gozaimashita!!!
