Memorial to Stan Pranin

Stanley Pranin was an unusually gifted man whose passion for unveiling the intricacies of aikido history gave us all a vision unprecedented in our life time. He tempered this passion with an ability to find balance in politics and unwavering insight into the great masters of aikido, especially the founder Morihei Ueshiba. His humor and unrelenting quest for the truth in any situation is cause enough to consider him legendary. In addition he was a dedicated practitioner and teacher of aikido with a flair for finding just the right angle or zone in any situation. An honorable man, he is survived by his wife Yoshuko Pranin and two beautiful children, Johnny and Janette Pranin. We will miss you Stan, but your legacy and wisdom will live on in the aikido world for generations to come.
