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.
Some of those moments......
