Sensei Hirokazo Kanazawa passed away peacefully at the age of 88.
He was one of the elite karatekas that JKA send around the world to spread and promote karate.

He had a great impact on the promotion and development of karate.

Kanazawa Sensei will be sorely missed!! His impact on Karate, namely Shotokan, and the MA in general was felt worldwide. His lineage is undeniable with his teachers being Gichin Funakoshi and Masatoshi Nakayama.

I, too, would like to offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends and his students around the world. RIP, Kanazawa Sensei!!

May he rest in peace. The lives that an MAist like that touches throughout his life, and the impact he makes on so many, is incalculable.
