Today, October 11, we are informed by the sad news that Shihan Shingo Ohgami has left us. Shihan Shingo has since 1969 been a profile within Wadokai / Budo in Sweden.
Yoshinken honors a great Budoka and good friend of Sensei Marshall by sending our thoughts to Shihan Shingo during the Ritsuzen training in the Haga Park Echo Temple.
