Shindai Dojo will be observing a period of mourning that will culminate with Kagami Biraki in January 2015.
Shindai Dojo is saddened beyond words at the passing of Dennis Hooker Sensei 7th Dan (ASU Shihan) .
Our teacher, our patriarch, our Sensei died of natural causes on May 20th after a long valiant battle with life.
The world of Aikido and Budo has lost a great teacher and champion without peer. His perseverance, Bubo spirit, phenomenal martial ability, inspiration and the encouragement he gave his students will forever be etched into the hearts of his students and the future of his Shindai Dojo.
Shindai Dojo, his dojo, will mourn his loss always.
–S. Fasen Sensei
