Masamichi Noro Sensei Passes Away
Posted 3/15/2013 3:52pm [from Jun Akiyama]
Aikido Journal is reporting that Masamichi Noro sensei (1935-2013) has passed away.
Born in 1935 in Aomori, Japan, Noro trained under Morihei Ueshiba from 1955 to 1961. He was sent to Marseille, France, in 1961 as a 6th dan to help spread aikido to Europe and Africa. In 1979, he created Kinomichi.
My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
