Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei Passes Away
Posted 7/10/2010 9:06am [from Jun Akiyama]

Nobuyoshi Tamura sensei (8th dan, Aikikai) passed away on July 9th, 2010. He was born in 1933 in Osaka, Japan and started out as an uchideshi under Morihei Ueshiba sensei in 1953. He was sent to Marseille, France, by Ueshiba sensei in 1964; according to Wikipedia, "he arrived in France in the port of Marseille in 1964 as the final destination of his honeymoon cruise (he paid part of his trip by performing aikido exhibitions on the ship). In France, he succeeded Tadashi Abe as the Aikikai representative there and decided to stay in this country teaching aikido as a living, despite the fact that he was barely speaking French at that time." My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
