Morihiko (Mark) Murashige Sensei Passes Away
Posted 10/14/2013 5:59pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Morihiko (Mark) Murashige Sensei has passed away, according to our friends at Jiai Aikido. Born in Yamaguchi-ken in 1945, Murashige started training aikido at age 17 under his father, Aritoshi Murashige. He moved to Tokyo to train with Morihei Ueshiba and others including Seigo Yamaguchi, Kazuo Chiba, and Mitsunari Kanai. He taught at Yoshimitsu Yamada's New York Aikikai for three years starting in 1965 before returning back to Japan. He also taught at San Diego Aikikai with Chiba starting in 1981. He taught his last class at Jiai Aikido on October 1, 2013. There is a fundraising link on the Jiai Aikido website. My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
