She was the youngest daughter of the founder of Danzan Ryu Jujutsu, Professor Henry Okazaki.

so sad to hear this news. It is very saddening to know that great teachers of older generations are dying out, before we are able to learn all of their wisdom and knowledge. I pray to Lord God, please give strength to the Okazaki family. May Prof. Imi Okazaki-Mullins rests in peace.

Every one in my dojo who knew her was devastated to hear of her passing. Her women’s only class at convention were always the highlight of the weekend. This years AJJF convention will shine a little less brightly.
