We are sad to announce that Toma Rosenzweig passed away peacefully on the morning of September 16th 2013. Toma has been a large part of the Aikido community since 1974. He joined Aikido Daiwa in 1981, and was recently promoted to 5th dan by Hombu Dojo of Tokyo. He was a friend to us all and will be missed. Plans are underway for a memorial (service) for Toma; we will update the website and Birankai members when we have selected a date.
