Dear Mrs. Pantanowitz and IOGKF Israël,
It was with great astonishment we heared the news about the illness of
Sensei Leon and it is with even greater astonishment we heared about his passing away. We would like to express our sincere condolences to you and your family. I’m sorry we can not be there with you to support you and your family but I’m sure your students will be there for you!
Sensei Leon was a great friend and a good teacher. His passing away is a great lost for you and your family but also for IOGKF. It will never be the same without him.
We will always carry him in our heart. We will always remember his
enthusiasm when he talked about his family and about Okinawan Goju-Ryu karate. We will miss his “Hello Belgium” when we arrived at a gasshuku.
Norma I know you are a strong women but that does not make it easier. Please take care of yourself and we hope to see you as soon as possible.
Patrick and Mieke Curinckx
and all Belgian IOGKF members
