Shihan smith passes away...
I am sorry that I have such sad news for you all- But I feel that all of you should know.
This morning being the 24.8.06, shihan smith passed away. For me and all those who trained under him this is a blow. Sensei had been suffering illness for some time- his passing does still strikes as a shock.
My prayers and feelings go out to those who knew him personally and my sympathy to his family and friends.
