I have been informed by the Isle of Man aikido dojo that Alan Ruddock Sensei has passed away.For those who may not know Ruddock Sensei he was an Irishman who trained with O Sensei. As such he was an early pioneer alongside Ken Cottier Sensei and Henry Kono Sensei.He was also involved in Karate. I would like to express my deep sympathy and sadness on behalf of the Aikido community to his family and friends.with respect, Joe Curran.
