Gibu Sokuichi Passes.
I have just been notified that Gibu Sensei of Shorin Ryu Butokukan has passed.
He was a senior student of Nakazato sensei before he started his own association.
I've had the pleasure and privilege of attending one of his training camps at the in invitation of a good friend.
A great lose to the karate world.
