RIP: Clark Bateman
Friday morning, at the age of only 64, well known Aikidoka Clark Bateman died of an apparent heart attack at his home on Orlando, Florida. Clark may best be known for his intelligent and insightful book reviews on the Aikido Journal and AikiWeb internet web sites. He had amassed an extensive book collection and always looked for a conversation where he could remind people of the historical, philosophical, and spiritual aspects of Aikido, the art of peace, for fear the essence will be lost. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
