The sad passing of, Senta Yamada Sensei, who died at 5pm on the 8th August 2010, after battling with Pancreatic Cancer. His daughter, Tomiko, was at his bedside, lovingly nursing him throughout his illness. He was 86 years old. John & Pepi Waite, Peter Martin and Adrian Walters, managed to visit Yamada sensei a few times during their visit to Fukuoka and although he was in too much pain to speak they did manage to obtain recognition from him by the way he smiled and held their hands.
He will be greatly missed by all his Family and many, many Friends worldwide.
The funeral was held on Thursday the 12th of August. 

Yamada sensei will always be in our hearts every time we enter a dojo or step on a tatami.
The one comfort is that his teaching and philosophy lives on through his students and friends.

On 12th September, 2010 - A training session hosted by Kikusui Kai, Shukumei and Goshinaikikwai was held in honour of the passing of Yamada Sensei.

Thanks to everyone for supporting this event. It was very touching to see everyone's generosity and good spirit. Almost 300 was raised, which was donated to "The Red Cross Japan Tsunami Fund".
