It Had to Be Felt #76: Asai Katsuaki: "Like a safecracker"
Posted 2/17/2022 7:16pm [from Jun Akiyama]

The latest "It Had to Be Felt" essay is now available for your reading pleasure, this time on Asai Katsuaki (8th dan, Aikikai Deutschland), written by Markus Rohde (5th dan, Aikidoschule Essen). From the essay: "Asai sensei once told us that when he attacked O-sensei, his body moved because he was drawn into that movement, before he could understand why. Taking ukemi for Asai Sensei often approaches that; he definitely possesses some degree of this attracting force. You really get the feeling to be taken, and being required to stick to him."

Yoshimitsu Yamada Passes Away
Posted 1/15/2023 4:31pm [from Jun Akiyama]

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.
