Obituary: Cottier Shihan

It is with deep regret that I have to announce Mr Kenneth Edward Cottier Shihan, 7th dan, passed away on June 8th at the age of 74.

Cottier Shihan has been one of the best friends of the IAF from the time of its establishment. 
He successively filled the posts of the IAF Superior Councillor and/or Technical Councillor by the appointment of the Aikikai Foundation.

Praying for the repose of his noble soul,

Hiroshi Somemiya
IAF General Secretary
