Peter Ting Sensei Passes Away
Posted 2/27/2001 3:04pm [from Richard Harnack]

Peter Ting Sensei, Rokudan, passed away February 20, 2001 after an extended bout with cancer. Ting Sensei was a long time Aikidoka who was affiliated with Seidokan Aikido and Ki Society. He established Ting Ki Aikido in Arizona where he taught for many years. Ting Sensei also had a long career in Kung Fu, prior to his involvement in Aikido. He would have been 80 this year. [AikiWeb Editor's Note: I wanted to extend my own condolensces to Ting sensei's family, friends, and loved ones. I actually met and trained with Ting sensei a couple of times in San Francisco and in Arizona. I remember he took me and another student out to lunch in San Francisco as we were visitors. He was a very nice gentleman who had some wonderful stories to tell. He will be missed. -- Jun]
