I have received a report that George Leonard sensei of Aikido of Tamalpais has passed away. Born in 1923, Leonard sensei was the author of aikido-related books such as "The Way of Aikido: Life Lessons from an American Sensei" and "Mastery" as well as many non-aikido books and articles. He held a fifth dan in aikido and taught at the Aikido of Tamalpais dojo in Marin County, CA. An interview with him may be found here
My condolences go out to his friends, family, students, and loved ones.
