Kato sensei in memoriam

It is with great sadness that the SKDUN have to report to its members the passing of Sadashige Kato sensei. Kato sensei was a guardian of the Budo way of Shotokan karate, he was an inspiration to many karate-ka and a mentor to senior grades. He was a good friend to the SKDUN and his passing will be a huge loss to the world of Shotokan karate. Our condolences go out to his family and all IJKA members worldwide.

    An inspirational teacher. The finest personally, due to his clarity of true karate. The dojo atmosphere was ” special” in his presence because you knew you were learning authentic karate and he imparted his depth of knowledge without any semblance of egocentricity, despite his obvious ability.

    A privilege to have known him.
