Watanabe Nobuyuki Passes Away

I have just been informed that Watanabe Nobuyuki (8th dan, Aikikai Hombu Dojo) passed away at the age of 89 years old on August 20, 2019.

Watanabe started aikido at age 22 in 1952 before becoming uchideshi at Aikikai Hombu Dojo.

He was known for his "no touch" aikido techniques demonstrated at the All Japan Aikido Demonstration (video here). Watanabe was featured in AikiWeb's "It Had to Be Felt" column series with an essay by Ellis Amdur (available here).

My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
