    Stanley Pranin, editor-in-chief of Aikido Journal, has helped contribute to the world of aikido through his decades-long dedication as a researcher and historian of aikido. According to his GoFundMe page: "After months of low appetite and poor health, Stan was diagnosed with advanced stomach cancer. Weakened by the disease, Stan’s ability to work and further his aikido studies has diminished, but his will to fight is strong." Please help Stanley's medical fund by contributing to this campaign. And, please share to spread the news. My best wishes go out to Stanley as he enters into his recovery process, and to his family and friends as they provide support.

Aikido Yuishinkai has influences from the internal aspects of Daito Ryu and Ki-Aikido, as well as Shinkage Ryu sword, the technical curriculum represents Maruyama Sensei’s desire to pass on the aikido he learned directly from the founder himself
