Dear AYF members,

It is with deep regret and great sorrow that we must inform you of the death of Inoue Kyoichi Sensei on 23rd December 2017.

Inoue Sensei, 10th dan, played a key role in the development of the current curriculum of Yoshinkan Aikido, under the guidance of Gozo Shioda. He will be remembered among us as one of Aikido's greatest martial artists.

We wish to let you know that the wake to celebrate his life and his Aikido career will be held on 27th December at 6pm at:

Nagasaki Shikiten Center
Higashimurayama City
Tel: 0120-263-566

His funeral will be held on 28th December at 8.45am at the same place.

Those wishing to pay their respects to Inoue Sensei can do so by attending either the wake or the funeral, or by sending flowers to the address above.

With kindest regards at this sad time,

Masahiko Noriki
