Death of Jack Arnold 7th Dan, Shihan

Posted 2013-11-06 09:12:31 by Joe Curran

Dear all,
Again I bring news of the passing of another early pioneer of aikido. Jack Arnold 7th Dan Shihan, of Aikido Daiwa died peacefully at his home in the presence of his wife and his students. For many years Mr Arnold had been a major influence within Birankai North America. He was well loved and respected by all who knew him. His passing is indeed a sad loss to everyone. I send my condolences and a message of sympathy to Mr Arnold's wife and to his students. Another great man departs this mortal coil. With much respect , Joe.
