Re: Death of Jack Arnold 7th Dan, Shihan

Jack Arnold Shihan was first and foremost, an honorable man. His sense of loyalty, respect for others, and his deep compassion for his fellow humans, distinguished him apart from the many who would claim the mantle of a true leader. Quiet, unassuming, and more than willing to allow others to take the spotlight, he nonetheless played significant roles in the formation and progress of Ueshiba Aikido in Southern California and beyond. I am proud to call him friend.

My sincerest condolences to his family, friends, and the many associates he befriended throughout the decades of service to the cause of Aikido, and to humanity.

Guess Big Man upstairs needed a drummer. Well, he now has one of the very best.

May he rest in the Peace he so richly deserves.
