I have received word that Dick Stroud (6th dan, MIT Aikido Club) passed away this weekend in his sleep while in Japan.
Stroud celebrated his 80th birthday and his 40+ years in aikido in 2013 after having taught at the MIT Aikido Club for over 30 years. He was a student of the late Mitsunari Kanai sensei.
My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
