Re: Hiroshi Kato Passes Away

The dojos in Texas and Mexico known locally as the Shudokan Aikido Association are mourning the passing of our master instructor, Hiroshi Kato Shihan. He was an amazing instructor with a deep knowlege of the art. Always joyful on the mat and interacting with all the students, he was like a father to all of us. We will so miss the times of happiness and joy as we shared Aikido with each other. Kato Sensei was more than an instructor to us. He was a friend who came with gifts and shared his life, his counsels and his talents with us. He will remain in our hearts forever. Everyone here is absolutely heart broken. Emails are pouring in from all over the world.
