    I have just gotten word that Yoshimitsu Yamada (8th dan, New York Aikikai) passed away today on January 15, 2023. Born in 1938, Yamada started aikido at age 17 as uchideshi to Morihei Ueshiba at Aikikai Hombu Dojo. He first came to the United States in 1964 and moved to New York to take care of the New York Aikikai (which was founded in 1961). Yamada was president of the United States Aikido Federation, established in 1976. My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.

    I have gotten word that Wendy Palmer sensei (7th dan, Aikido of Tamalpais) passed away on December 2, 2022 due to lung cancer. Wendy started aikido in 1971 in San Francisco, California, with Bob Nadeau. She met George Leonard and Richard Strozzi-Heckler at Aikido of San Francisco on Turk Street; the three of them would establish Aikido of Tamalpais in Mill Valley in 1976. She was the founder of Leadership Embodiment which brought together her experiences in Aikido and meditation. My condolences go out to her family, students, and loved ones.
