So in the quest to sharpen my sharpening skills :lol2: I offered to sharpen my mother in laws global santoku. I notice it has some very small chips and was wondering if there was a way I could remove them.

How small? Usually very small chips come out all by themselves after 1 or 2 sharpening sessions where you start with a low (sub 600) grit stone. If they bother you, spend extra time on your low grit stone and remove them completely. Usually I just leave them and let them work themselves out over time.

to me, they seem quite small. I will work on it but only have a 1000 and 6000

Spend time on the 1k. It'll build muscle memory!

Aren't globals somewhat chippy?

I haven't seen any on mine. And they used to get a good workout all the time.
