I remember Tamura Sensei.......

I first met Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei at a seminar in La Colle sur Loup, France.

Over the next few years I would attend his classes in Australia, Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan and Japan.

I was truly impressed not just by his Aikido skill but by his disarming friendliness.

I have many happy memories of him.

My deepest condolences go to Madame Rumiko and family during this bereavement.

The Aikido world has lost a great disciple, teacher and friend.

I feel a personal loss, too.

May Tamura Sensei rest in peace.
