Abe Seiseki Sensei Passes Away
Posted 5/18/2011 11:41am [from Jun Akiyama]

Abe Seiseki sensei has passed away on May 18th, 2011 at the age of 96. He was both a student of aikido founder Morihei Ueshiba as well as his calligraphy teacher. He was awarded 10th dan verbally by the founder, although the Aikikai only recognized him as 8th dan. Our condolences go to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
