I was saddened today by the news of Yehuda “Leon” Pantanowitz passing away. I have many fond memories of time spent with him on many occasions. May his family find the strength and courage to see through this difficult time. Until we all meet again in the “Big Dojo in the Sky”, I send my sympathies to Norma, family and friends and all those he touched with his friendship and time in karate-do. He was a rock in the IOGKF and a great support to Higaonna Sensei, who I’m sure, will miss him greatly.
With deepest sympathy and respect,
