Sadly, we've learned that Takashi Nonaka Sensei, Hawaii Ki Society 9th dan, has passed away. The funeral will be held on Saturday, November 5th. Our condolences to his friends, family and students. There's an article about him here - he was one of the original practitioners of Aikido in Hawaii and did much of the translation for Morihei Ueshiba when he visited Hawaii in 1961.
