RABOUIN SENSEI PASSES AWAY

Aug. 15, 2011: Today is a sad day. At 5:00 o'clock this morning we received a call from the Oakwood Nursing Home (Red Lion Rd., Phila., PA) informing us that Rabouin Sensei had passed away quietly in his sleep.

Rabouin Sensei began his study of Shotokan karate in 1952 and founded the American Self Defense Karate Association in 1959. He was recognized in 1964 by Black Belt Magazine as one of the pioneers of karate in the United States.

His passing comes just a few weeks short of his 85th birthday (09/08/26).
