    Aikido Comes to America places several early US practitioners in the context of the art's arrival and dissemination amidst American popular culture, spanning from the Beat Movement of the 1950s to the Japanese film craze of the 1980s and early 1990s. This book discusses aikido pioneers including Rodney Grantham, Thomas "Doc" Walker, Sam Combes, Steven Seagal, Lisa Tomoleoni, and George Kennedy among others.

    I have just received news that Wendy Whited (7th dan, Inaka Dojo, Beecher IL) passed away on September 29, 2021 from cancer. She started aikido at Northen Illinois University in 1973. She visited Japan first in 1978 and returned in 1987 to be part of the Japanese Exchange of Teachers program for two years. She started Inaka Dojo in 1992. She was an educator, teaching junior high school from 1980 then later becoming school principal from 1999 until she retired in 2012. My condolences go out to her friends, family, students, and loved ones.
