I'm deeply saddened by the passing of Parker-shihan. He was a great teacher and a man of dignity, calm spirit and beautiful heart, both on and off the mats! He brought his passion of aikido to all his students, and in doing so, he made the world a better place.
My deepest sympathies to the Parker family.
心よりお悔やみ申し上げます (From my heart I give you my condolences)
Parker-shihan, domo arigato gozaimashita.
