Sensei Leon is gentle, generous and rooted,
He protects, guards and nourishes,
He is like a big sacred tree,
He energies those around him.
May I suggest that each IOGKF country plant or dedicate a tree in memory of sensei Leon, and with each day, we grow in body and spirit with the trees to help make a better world for all to live in.
As we parted way after the 2004 Budosai, he gifted me with these words ” Do not take PEACE for granted ”
