Gilbert James Sensei Passes Away
Posted 2/27/2002 9:25am [from Jun Akiyama]

I have just received word that Gilbert James sensei, 6th dan Yoshinkan, of the Midwest Yoshinkai Aikido Association in Chicago, Illinois, has passed away. The e-mail that I received reads, "At approximately 1:30 p.m. today, Tuesday, February 26, Sensei Gilbert James passed away. Sensei James, who had been battling cancer, had dedicated the past 40 years of his life to Yoshinkan Aikido and sharing his knowledge with countless students. He has touched many of our lives beyond the art and will be missed. Sensei James requested that he be cremated and details of his memorial will be forthcoming. On behalf of the Midwest Yoshinkai Aikido Association and the James family, I want to thank the many of you who have shared kind words and wishes to Sensei James during his struggle. Please continue to think of him when you are training. By doing so, you will make him smile as he makes corrections to our techniques from a better place. -- Kevin Bradley". I wish to send my condolences to James sensei's family, friends, students, and loved ones.
