It is with deep sorrow that the WKF informs that Mr Toru Arakawa, JKF special advisor, passed away on June 20, 2015.

Mr Arakawa spent his life in contribution to the development of Karatedo, and was involved in JKF since its foundation in 1969. Furthermore, he also rendered valuable services to the WKF as a Technical Committee member in the late 1990’s.
