Sadly, we have lost another of the North American Shihankai, and a lynchpin of aikido in Canada.. Below is an email from the Canadian Aikido Federation..
"Dear CAF Members,
It is with the deepest regret and profound sorrow that I inform you of the death of Kawahara Shihan.
He passed away in Victoria on Thursday evening. During his last days he was kindly attended to by a number of his students who communicated to him the great respect and affection that so many of us felt.
More information will follow as it becomes available.
