    Simon:

    George Grimes Kyoshi has recently been promoted to 8th Dan by the EKF.
    IMO a more than justified award to one of the first generation Wadoka in the UK.

    Tatsuo Suzuki

    It has come to my knowledge that the legendary Tatsuo Suzuki has passed away.

    Truly a sad day for all practitioners of Wado and the world of Karate.

    Nick Smith?

    How do you know of Smithy?

    Just curious as he is my longest friend in Karate. (Nearly 30 years).

    I'm afraid he started in March 1974, so won't make the list.

    Thankyou AJ.

    It was a great loss to the Wado world when Ishikawa Shihan passed away.
    My one regret is that I never got the chance to train with him.
