Re: Passing of Seiichi Sugano Shihan
I remember Sugano sensei's visit to Toronto years ago.. I was only 5th or 4th kyu then, with no idea who he was besides an uchi-deshi of o-sensei from NY Aikikai.. I remember his ear to ear smiles THROUGH HIS BEARD every time he spoke.. How gently spoken he was, but how solid his posture was.. The aikido world is poorer for now losing Sugano sensei, and (recently) Tamura sensei.. BUT the afterlife just became a better place to be with both shihans there..
