(A message from Maya – July 2018 update)
Shiomitsu Sensei attended the Wado Academy winter course this year, and was heartened by the warmth of support and dedication of his students.
While he remains in good spirits, Shiomitsu Sensei has recently undergone surgery to relieve pressure on his brain after a subdural bleed. He is continuing his recovery and ongoing rehabilitation in hospital with Maya’s daily supervision, attendance and care.
