Re: Robert Bryner Sensei Passes Away
Robert Bryner Sensei was an important pioneer for martial arts in California and beyond. He stayed under the radar, focusing on the needs of his primary students in Aikido, Karate, and other related disciplines. He and his lovely bride Chikako spearheaded many functions, introducing name instructors to their students, but also to any who chose to attend regardless of affiliation or organizational identity.
His quiet but admirable leadership will be sorely missed, but have no doubts that his legacy and example will continue to shine brightly in our memories, and our hearts. Rest in Peace, Bryner Sensei.
Heartfelt condolences to his wife, children, students, and many friends and admirers for their loss.
