It is with great sadness that I have to report the death of Yoshinao Nanbu sensei.
A great Karateka and pioneer of SHUKOKAI karate in Europe . I have spent sometime training under him in the past and had the pleasure of meeting with him and chatting about his life in Karate and the martial arts, I found him to be an absolute gentleman.
He will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Deepest condolences to his family and students of Nanbudo.
Another great passes over RIP sensei.
