Passing Of A Giant

Dear friends,

I just received this e-mail from Stanley Pranin :

"Aikido Great Morihiro Saito Shihan passes away

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Morihiro Saito
Sensei in Iwama, Japan early Monday morning, May 13, 2002. Saito Sensei
was truly one of the giants of modern aikido and his strong presence will
be sorely missed. This editor was among the thousands of students touched
by Saito Sensei during his lifetime.

His son and successor Hitohiro Saito Shihan plans to hold a private
funeral for family members shortly and a formal ceremony to be held in
Japan in about one month's time. He asks that anyone planning to go to
Japan to pay their respects attend the formal funeral to be announced

For those interested in learning more about Saito Sensei, here are two
articles available on our website:

Stanley Pranin"
########################################### We join the aikido community in a deep feeling of sorrow for such a great loss.
Another giant passes away...
