The sad news of the passing of Kanazawa Sensei on 8th December 2019 has been felt throughout the world of martial arts, and especially within the Shotokan community.

Shihan was a close friend and for many years a student of Kanazawa Sensei, and his teaching echos through all we do and practice.

The Shotokan Times have opened a condolence board, and Shihan has posted a heartfelt and fitting tribute to his former teacher:

Our thoughts are with the family of Kanazawa Sensei, and all those touched by his teachings.
