In Memoriam

Kyoshi David Williams Sensei, 7th Dan of Williams Martial Arts in Cincinnati, Ohio passed away Monday December 8th from a heart attack. Many of you met him in New York in October at the World Seminar. I had the wonderful opportunity of being partnered with him all weekend. He was a master of karate techniques and an even bigger Gentleman. He will be sadly missed by everyone in Matsubayashi-Ryu and the Karate world.

Old Dojo on Clements

Center at May Seminar in Guelph

On Saturday November 22nd, 2008 Robert Tompkins passed away. He was in a battle with cancer and fought until the end. Robert,an accomplished martial artist, trained in Jodo where he had attained the rank of Shodan but would have been Nidan if he hadn't had to take the last year off to focus all his efforts in this battle. Those who new him were very aware of his warrior spirit and tenacity when doing Jodo and were equally aware of the soft, humerous and gentle man when not involved in Jodo. It was an honor to know him and to train with him. His Jodo was top notch. He will be sadly missed at Renseikan Dojo and I am sure he has not stopped training, he is just in a "different dojo" now.

EMKA Seminar in Norway

While the above picture is not about Karate-do specifically, it is breath taking and awe inspiring. One of our students,Tony Gibson, travelled to Norway for the EMKA (European Matsubayashi-Ryu Karate-Do Association) World Seminar with Soke Nagamine and took these pictures including this one of the Sognafjord, the longest fjord in Norway.
