NIKW Mourns the passing of Sensei Hakoishi

It is with great sadness we have learnt of the passing of Sensei Katsumi Hakoishi.

Sensei Hakoishi was an 8th Dan with the JKF and he played a vital role in the development of Wado-Kai Karate and within the JKF & WKF.

A personal and long-time friend of the NIKW’s chief Instructor Sensei Brunton, their friendship spanned the decades. Training together to refine and develop the art of Karate-Do.

Sensei Brunton has said “I am deeply saddened by the passing of my long term friend, my deepest sympathies and thoughts are with his family at this time.”
