Sensei Ettienne Venter has passed away suddenly

It was with deep shock that we learned of the sudden passing of Sensei Ettienne Venter – a longtime stalwart of the Cape Aikido Community

He had a mild heart attack on the morning of 16 December 2013 , followed by a major one 2hours later. Whilst he had been battling somewhat with his health in recent years, it did seem that he had turned a corner for the better.

Sensei Etienne took over the Cape Town dojo after the passing of Jos Niehaus and more recently concentrated on  teaching at the Stellenbosch Sakura dojo.

Our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
