I have never met Clark in person but did get to know him and his ideas through here and on 'Aikido Journal'. I enjoyed his participation in many online discussions and am myself certainly the better for it. I am quite sure that had we met, we would have become instant friends. He is one of the few that reviewed my book when it first came out. RIP Clark Bateman!
Clark was constantly ordering new published books and enjoyed reviewing them. He also enjoyed sharing is insights and opinions. I am sure your book is still on his shelf.
