News – Important message from Shiomitsu Sensei with regards to delegation of training courses and points – letter from Sensei
Sad news reported from Kazutaka Otsuka Sensei
“I regretfully inform you that my mother, Aiko Otsuka passed away on January 25th early morning peacefully.
She was the first lady to start Wado-Ryu and hold a black belt in Japan perhaps in the world as well.
We are missing her very much.
I would appreciate it if you would pray for her soul – rest in peace.”
