Re: Passing of Seiichi Sugano Shihan

Sad, sad news indeed.

I visited New York Aikikai the day Sugano Sensei returned to the mat after his surgery in 200(3?), and remember that slipper going flying.

Though I was not lucky enough to be thrown by him, his smile is what I will remember the most, and of course his fantastic technique.

My condolences to all who knew him, both on and off the mat.
