Asai Sensei 1935 - 2006
The very sad news has reached us that Sensei passed away on Tuesday afternoon 15th August 2006 following a struggle against prolonged illness.
Our thoughts go to his family at this time.
Sunday - I have just returned from training with Sensei Alan Campbell, Asai Sensei's spirit and his karate will live on in the JKS (and IJKA). I did have the pleasure of training with Asai Sensei very briefly, all to briefly. I leave further comment to those karateka that knew him well.
