Sad News

For those who have not yet heard, Alfredo has sadly passed away from bladder Cancer.

He will certainly be missed because he was always such an enthusiastic participant in every class he attended. Training with him was always joyful and his smile while doing so was infectious enough to make those around him smile as well… and that’s what Aikido should be about, enjoyment combined with pure intention to learn. Alfredo always exhibited those attributes, and we as a group are poorer because of his absence.
