Yamada Senta Sensei

It is with deep sadness and regret to announce the 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 will be held on Thursday the 12th of August.
