  1. Gail, Sorry to hear of Warren’s passing, but so happy there is no more suffering for him. It was a pleasure meeting you both and caring for Warren. Thanks for all the special treats you always brought me. 🙂 You both have a special place in my heart! xo – Nicole

  2. My deepest sympathies to the Berlin family. My 30+ years in the martial arts started with Warren Berlin as my first instructor. He was a major influence for several years at a very important time in my life. Thank you sir for introducing me to the world of Jujitsu, Karate, Iaido, Kenpo and others. The lessons learned will not be forgotten. Rest in peace Sensei.

  3. My sympathies to the Berlin family. Mr. Berlin also introduced me to Jujitsu, Karate and various other forms. The training that he provided to myself and others was integral to our own life path. The lessons that he taught are clear and have helped me with my own students. Rest In Peace Sensei. Neil Calhoun

  4. Our (Kim, Bruce) deepest sympathy to the Berlin family. Warren was the one who set me straight in my training. He was always there in our needs and always ready to make us laugh. He is responsible for getting me to black belt. He was a good friend and will be greatly missed.

  5. Gail, all our lives have changed and regretfully we have not remained in touch, but Warren has been on my mind for a while. Going back many years when I, as a Shiatsu therapist, first met Warren whilst searching for more information on ‘off body energy’ at his original studio in Kitchener. He ran an excellent school which meant a lot to so many young people at that time. Even at this late date please accept my condolences.
