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.
