Abe sensei is still teaching. He was in Los Angeles conducting an Aikido seminar in October 2006, at Doshinokai and Ikazuchi Dojo. Also I edited the main page which wrongly stated Abe sensei's degree as being 8th. I corrected it to 10th, which was given to him directly by his Master, close friend and Shodo student, the founder of Aikido.
