Yoshimitsu Yamada Passes Away

Posted 2023-01-15 16:31:05 by Jun Akiyama

I have just gotten word that Yoshimitsu Yamada (8th dan, New York Aikikai) passed away today on January 15, 2023.

Born in 1938, Yamada started aikido at age 17 as uchideshi to Morihei Ueshiba at Aikikai Hombu Dojo. He first came to the United States in 1964 and moved to New York to take care of the New York Aikikai (which was founded in 1961). Yamada was president of the United States Aikido Federation, established in 1976.

My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
