It is with great sadness and sorrow that we announce that today, Sunday the 7th of January 2018, we received the tragic and most unfortunate news of the passing of our Soke, Yamada Haruyoshi sensei. His funeral will take place in Amagasaki Tenrei Kaikan on Wednesday the 10th of January at 10:00 o ‘clock in the morning.
On the 9th of January, there will be a lyke-wake (pre-funeral) held at 19:00 at Tenrei Kaikan Amagasaki again.
There will be a memorial held in Amagasaki city on the 24th of March from 18:00 at Hotel New Archaic.
We are all very grateful to have know him, to have trained with him and to be parts of this great, worldwide karate family that he has established. Yamada sensei will be greatly missed. May he rest in peace.
