“The Pernatin Memorial Library”



For Community Members to Borrow.

Richard Pernatin Sensei achieved the Rank of San Dan and was beloved by anyone he met. I will always remember his mischievous smile and spirit. He passed away in 2011 and donated most of the books in this Library to all Fortitude Valley Aikido community members. Sometime I find notes from my old friend and teacher within the pages and smile.

If you wish to borrow a well loved book, talk to the current Librarian and fellow mischief maker,

Sensei Lee.
