On 17th January 2012. at 21:35 pm (Japan time), after a long and heavy sickness, forever left us Koichi Oguri Shihan. Koichi Oguri Shihan is one of Japanese respectfull Shi Tenno. He was Soke Hatsumi student and a friend more than 40 years, with whom he passed many good things.

Although we did not practiced so often with him, we highly respect him and learned a lot from him. He was a good teacher, very good and kind person always willing to help and give advice. We were experiencing him as a humble, silent, somewhat withdrawn person, but a good person and skilled teacher. We will always have him in nice memory.

We deeply regret his loss and we wish to express sincere condolences and respect to the Oguri family.
