Dear Chief Instructors,

We regret to inform you that Koichi Tohei Sensei passed away at 9:14 this morning.

He was 91 years old.

Two weeks ago, he had sense of discomfort on his chest and it was found that

he had inflammation of the lungs, so he had been receiving treatment.

He went to intensive-care unit (ICU) twice and came back to general ward each time

with his strength of Ki, however, his heart got weak little by little this morning

and passed away.

After discussion in his family and it was decided that the closed funeral will be held within his

family including Shinichi Tohei Sensei and the formal funeral for all members will be

held in Tokyo some weeks later for those who would like to be present.

The date and place of the formal funeral will be announced to all of you after decided.

We are very sorry for the inconvenience but would appreciate your kind understanding

for the above.
