TO: Uechi-Ryu West
On behalf of myself, my family and all Okikukai Australia we send our
deepest sympathy to the family and students of Master Ahti Kaend.
I apologise for not responding sooner as I was away in Perth for our
National Karate championships, and only yesterday (Wednesday) I checked
my email. I tried to contact by phone Mrs Olga Kaend but no one was
Master Ahti Kaend will be truly missed by us. Ahti was my first Uechi
teacher and I had a lot of respect for him, only the other week I was
planning to visit him next year.
Please pass on my respects to Mrs Kaend I will keep trying to contact
her by phone.
