sad news

Hi All,
Received sad news today concerning the passing of Morihiko [Mark.] Murashige 6th Dan Shihan. Murashige Sensei was a great aikidoka with a unique style.He was a very friendly , good humoured man.For a number of years in he assisted Chiba Sensei at San Diego Aikikai where as Assistant Instructor he made valuable contribution to the training there.Anyone who ever met him found something of interest and value in his teachings.
I am sure I speak for all who knew whenI say we have lost not only a great aikidoka but a dear friend.I offer my condolences , sympathy and deepest respect to his family.Today has been a sad day .May he rest in peace. With Respect, Joe Curran.

Dear Mary,
Thank you for your comment.Should you look in Facebook you will see that Murashige Sensei was much loved by all who knew him.There is a also a clip of him practicing , posted by a fellow aikidoka called Paul Robinson. Murashige Sensei had a unique style.He was a small man who had a big presence.Always quiet , cheerful and without ego.An example to all.He assisted Chiba Sensei for many years at San diego Aikikai ,where I first met him.His Aikido was entirely different from Chiba Sensei.I later said to Chiba Sensei'Where did you meet this guy?His aikido bears no resemblance to yours' Chiba Sensei gave a smile and rep lied, 'Thats why he is my assistant'.
Everybody liked MurashigeSensei.Every class was started by suwariwaza Ikkyo.The video clip shown on Facebook [Sensei is doing Shiho Nage and attacks to the knee is a clip from my aikido dvd collection] .As I said yeserday , it was a sad day and I found myself nearly weeping for the loss of this man and my thoughts go out to all his family. Cheers, Joe.
