Ceremony in T’souke for Kawahara Sensei

January 10, 2012 by admin in Kawahara Shihan

“With Sensei’s passing a shadow of grief has been cast over the Aikido community throughout Canada and in other centres where Sensei’s students have established themselves. Several events recognizing Sensei, his outstanding contribution to Aikido and his devotion to his students have already occurred and at least one other in Halifax is planned. Many of his students were unable to attend the other events and another is planned, in Vancouver, on August 21st. This is the official invitation to the event and we hope that you, and others who you know would like to attend, will be able to participate on August 21st.

On another note, the event organizers plan to invite up to a dozen persons to speak at the event, in memory of Sensei. If you would like to speak at the event, please send me an email to let me know that so we can coordinate the programme. If you have a text you would like to submit to be read at the event, if you cannot come, please send it to me as well. If the text is in Japanese only, we will read and translate it.”
