Masatake Fujita Passes Away
Posted 5/28/2014 8:48am [from Jun Akiyama]

Aikikai Hombu Dojo is reporting that Masatake Fujita (8th dan, Aikikai) has passed away on May 28th at the age of 77 years old. Fujita started aikido at Takushoku University in 1956 and in 1967 joined the office staff of the AIkikai. Here is an article on Fujita by Peter Goldsbury published just three days ago entitled "It Had To Be Felt #50: Masatake Fujita: When is a Hombu Deshi Not a Deshi? When He's the Secretary". My condolences go out to his family, friends, students, and loved ones.
