I want to express my deepest condolences for Norma and the whole Pantanowitz family for the passing of Sensei Leon. I am truly saddened to hear about his sudden passing, and there is so much I still wanted to say to Sensei Leon. It was a pleasure to have known him, and his memory still lives on inside me and all his friends all over the world. I’ve known Sensei Leon since when I was a baby, and since then I have grown up, but every time I saw him he never seemed to age a day. It was amazing. Always so full of life and ready to teach and pass on his knowledge to karate students, he was a real role model, and I am grateful to have known him.
Thank you Sensei Leon
