In memoriam Stanley PRANIN

It is with a heavy heart that we share the announcement of the passing of Stanley PRANIN, following the long battle fought against stomach cancer.

PRANIN Sensei was not only a master but a scholar of our art and a true builder of the aikidoka community in North America. A tireless historian who shared our passion with the world since the founding of the Aikido Journal in 1974. We also owe him the friendship demonstration from 1985 to 1988 and the Aiki Expos of 2003, 2005 and 2007.

In these difficult times, our thoughts and prayers go to the friends and family of PRANIN Sensei.
