News Title : Hanshi John Taylor, RIP
News Date : 2023-09-27
News Summary : It is with great sadness that we advise you of the death of our chairman Hanshi John Taylor (07 Jun 1941 - 27 Sep 2023).

John began his Kyokushin journey sixty years ago and was, at one time, a full time student of Sosai Mas Oyama. After receiving his Sandan he was one of the founders of AKKA and then elected chairman. For over six decades Hanshi taught Kyokushin Karate to thousands of students and promoted the growth of Kyokushin Karate in Australia, the South Pacific and Internationally. His contributions and leadership to Kyokushin Karate have left an indelible mark on all past and present karateka, Senpai, Sensai and Shihan (Hanshi's kohai). He will certainly be truly missed by all those who knew him.

We wish to send the AKKA's deepest condolences to his family at this very sad time.
