Masafumi Sakanishi sensei has passed away in Argentina. Born in 1954, he settled in Argentina in 1978 after studying aikido in Japan with instructors such as Yamaguchi sensei, Kuwamori sensei, Koyama sensei, and others including Kisshomaru Ueshiba sensei. He recently received his 7th dan promotion from Aikikai Hombu dojo in the 2012 kagami biraki promotions.
My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
