    It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of one of the world's greatest Karate masters, Hidetaka Nishiyama. Sensei Nishiyama was 80 -and passed after a long battle with cancer. Mr. Nishiyama dedicated his life to the Budo principles on which his beloved Martial Art of Traditional Karate is based. As a Charter Member of the Japan Karate Association and founding President of the Japan Karate Association International of America and the International Traditional Karate Federation, his influence on the modern day practice of Traditional Karate is unparalleled.

    It truly is a sad day for the traditional karatekas world wide and for those martial artists no matter the path. I studied Goju Ryu for well over 8 years and built my base on the budoka ways. I never had the pleasure to meet Nishiyama Sensei but his deeds, actions and words spoke volumes to the character of the man. Another great one goes home...RIP....and condolences to the family, students and friends.
