Arikawa Sensei passed away on Saturday, October 11. The funeral will take place on October 15.

I had heard that Arikawa Sensei wanted his illness and eventual passing to be left unpublicized—and also heard that he was such a major figure in aikido that this wish would be somewhat diffcult to carry out.

So I post it here, in a quiet corner of this web site, so that those who knew him can mourn his passing quietly.

May he rest in peace.
