Re: Passing of Yoji Fujimoto Sensei

My memory of Fujimoto Sensei is of when he was invited to teach at a British Aikido Federation Spring Course in Wales ten years or so ago, and I remember vividly his gentle manner and clear instruction.

He shared the teaching with Kanetsuka Sensei that weekend, and one thing that really surprised and impressed me was to see him joining in with the class in Kanetsuka Sensei's session as a student. That was the first and last time I have ever seen a Japanese shihan do that, and says a lot to me about his open-mindedness and humility.
