Death of Toyama Sensei

Here's some sad news.


Master Seiko Toyama, 10e DAN, born 25 October 1928 and last student of the founder of Uechi-ryu Karate-do Kanbun Uechi, died 10 April 2009 of age 80 years of lung cancer.

Maître Toyama, President of the association he created Zankai, taught in his dojo Zakimi-Yomitan in Okinawa until the end of his life. This is a curtain closes on the ancient history of uechi-ryu.

It is now our role and our responsibility to spread the Uechi-ryu keeping the spirit of Master Toyama who was a sincere practitioner during his lifetime.

May his soul rest in peace.
