Kato Sensei has passed

From David Burmeister:

Dear Friends,
I’m sorry to inform you that Kato Sensei passed away last night during his sleep. Kyoko received an email from Sadaki tonight saying that he had seen Kato-san the day before yesterday and he looked fine. Then he spoke with him again yesterday and he seemed just fine. Then by chance Kato-san’s girlfriend of many years, Akemei, visited him this morning and found him still in his bed, looking very peaceful. Sadaki said that he was happy he was not the one to discover his father and that he was glad his father seemed to have passed peacefully in his sleep.

Sadaki also suggested that we hold a memorial service for Kato-san when he is in Scottsdale in May, which we will be honored to do. I am very grateful for all the kindness and generosity of spirit Kato Sensei has shown to me and to the many others who were privileged to know him and to study with him.

With love, David

And some more words from Karin Schurian Rosenø:
For those who do not know who Kato was… He was together with Mary one of the two elected students of Master Jiro Murai, whom he asked to spread the word about JSJ. Mary did it in the US and Kato in Japan. I have never met him but I heard very interesting story about this little powerful teacher! May we honor him, Mary and Jiro while we use the art of Jin Shin Jyutsu.
