Re: Pierre Chassang Passes Away
Pierre was THE inspiration to the practice of many of my peers and seniors in my early years of training.
Over many summer schools, many weekend courses and many hours on and off the mat, Pierre never disappointed and it was always a joy to sit quietly and absorb a fraction of his tremendous knowledge.
He was larger than life, with a message to deliver and iron-determination to deliver it. His goal was to empower future generations with the means to understand Aikido and its practice.
For the examples he gave me in how to train, how to seek knowledge and how to conduct oneself while doing so I thank him sincerely.
Meeting Pierre was a game changer.
He will be missed immensely.
We will remember him.
