Re: Shinichi Suzuki Sensei Passes Away

Sayonara, Suzuki Sensei.

A huge Mahalo for all the Aloha your example has given us over the many wonderful years of your leadership in the Way of Aiki.

A true pioneer for the Aikido of the Founder, Morihei Ueshiba, you gave a true accounting of loyalty, perseverance and integrity in your life and your teachings. You stood by your mentor, Koichi Tohei Sensei throughout the years, and were perhaps not given your due by all members of the extended Aikido Family. Nonetheless, your example is a model for all of us, in or outside of Aikido.

Thank you for the memories, the teachings, and your generosity!

In Oneness,

francis y takahashi
