T.K. Chiba Shihan
February 5, 1940 - June 5, 2015

We wish to express our heartfelt condolences to Chiba Sensei's family and his dedicated students and instructors all around the world. We share with you the profound sadness of losing a truly inspiring and great teacher and martial artist. The senior members of the VWA have studied with him and have been inspired by his dynamic and powerful Aikido, and his profound philosophy on Aikido and the pursuit of true budo.
