I just heard from my second T'ai Chi teacher and dear friend Kajedo, that his teacher Toyo Kobayashi in Munich has died. He taught for many years, was a student of Dr Chi and wrote some excellent books on T'ai Chi. He was my 'grandteacher' for a long while, until I met my teacher Mark, in John Kell's Dr Chi lineage. He is survived by Petra Kobayashi, also a distinguished T'ai Chi teacher. It's very sad. I send my condolences to his family and students.
