Re: George Leonard Sensei Passes Away

Condolences to the family on behalf of Calgary Aikikai, in Canada.

I first read "The Silent Pulse" and "The Ultimate Athlete" while in university. George inspired me then as and educator and an amateur athlete and later ( many years later!) when I started aikido ten years ago at age 49 when I rediscovered him in hakama.

One of my goals was to travel down to Aikido of Tamalpais to practice at his dojo and I still plan to do that in his honor.

Thanks for the words and example.
