The passing of Shihan Leo Lipinski - Mon 1, Jan 2018 20:55:00 by Shihan
This morning, January 1st 2018, Shihan Leo Lipinski 8th Dan Seiwakai and 8th Dan JKF GOJUKAI went to the big dojo in the sky.
He formed many groups around the globe and was a pioneer for so many. His legacy spans many countries, including South Africa, USA, Europe, Australia, Asia, Japan and beyond.
We traveled together many a time for several decades. We laughed, quarrelled, joked, drank and ate and even did karate!
Fly high Shihan. You’ve blazed a karate path that many will continue the journey along. You’ll never be forgotten.
Condolences to your family and friends, fellow karatekas and loved ones.
