I am deeply distressed and shocked to hear that Sensei Leon Pantanowitz has passed away. I would like to pass on my condolences to his family and to his Dojo and students. He was a great instructor and his enthusiasm for Karate was contagious.
He had a great way of explaining what he wanted you to do, and he brought the best out in you, both in Karate and Socially. He was a great character and used to make me laugh and I consider myself very fortunate to have known him and consider him a friend.
My Family and I will sincerely and deeply miss him.
God bless you Sensei Leon.
