Dojo News: Death of Tsuneji "Tony" Sakakibara
Posted 7/24/2013 11:41am [from Don Crawford]

It is with great sadness that we note that Tsuneji Sakakibara, 6th dan, died July 22, 2013. Sakakibara Sensei was born February 3, 1937, in Handa (Aichi), Japan. He had succeeded Jon Takagi Sensei as Chief Instructor of Arizona Aikido after Takagi Sensei's death in February 1984. As his health started to fail, he took on the role of Chief Instructor Emeritus and continued to teach classes at Arizona Aikido on a fairly regular basis. Funeral arrangements are pending.
