Funeral of John McNamara

Due to the Funeral of Mr John McNamara there will be no training in St Andrew's on Saturday the 6th July.

Death of Mr John McNamara

The death has occurred of John McNamara, the founding instructor of the Public Service Aikido Club. He remained a Trustee and Honorary Life Member of the Club up to his death. At a time when the culture of the time in martial arts was, to paraphrase the time-worn formula, to be Iapaniciores Iapanicis ipsis, he taught us to distinguish the essential from the accidental and, with a firm discipline, to imbue our training with a sense of joy that pervades the club over 40 years later.
