Happy New Year 2011 from Aikido Journal!

On behalf of the staff of Aikido Journal, I would like to wish you a happy and prosperous New Year in 2011. We sincerely appreciate your support and interest in our work over the past 36 years since our beginning in 1974.

We have several major projects planned for 2011 that we feel will make a significant contribution to the resource materials available to aikido practitioners.

Please have a safe holiday and approach the New Year with a firm resolve!

Stanley Pranin


  1. Happy New Year Stan
    Thank you for all you have accomplished. It’s one hell of a statement-given all you have done- for you to say you have more in store for us in the coming year.
    Best research and reporting,
    Best “myth busting” and true legend building
    Best subscription value…on it’s own two feet, never mind the perks you offer…
    That I have ever seen.
    All the Best

    Many blessings.

  4. Stan,
    Your commitment and tireless effort in providing the aikido community with a valuable resource for helping us piece together the history of aikido as well as for creating study guides are unparalleled. We are most fortunate to have you in our community.
    May you have much joy in the New Year!


  6. Thank you Stanley Pranin, for over 36 years of excellence in reality research, responsible reporting and respectful restraint in fairly and comprehensively presenting the many facets of Ueshiba Aiki and O Sensei’s Aikido to the world.

    We unabashedly and eagerly await 36 more years of the same.

    A prosperous and joy filled New Year to the Pranins, and to the legion of supporters, both on staff, and at large.
