MSMAS mourns the loss of Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei...

Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei (8th Dan, Aikikai) passed away on July 9th, 2010....


Nobuyoshi Tamura Sensei was born in 1933 in Osaka, Japan and started out as an uchideshi under
Morihei Ueshiba Sensei in 1953.

Sent to Marseille, France, by Ueshiba Sensei in 1964, and according to Wikipedia, "arrived in France in the port of Marseille in 1964 as the final destination of his honeymoon cruise (he paid part of his trip by performing aikido exhibitions on the ship). In France, he succeeded Tadashi Abe as the Aikikai representative there and decided to stay in this country teaching Aikido as a living, despite the fact that he
was barely speaking French at that time.

Our Dojo will train in his memory for 28 days as a mark of respect.

Rest in peace...
