A TRIBUTE TO MASTER UESHIRO
May 7, 2002
It is with profound sadness and regret that I must inform you that Grand Master Ansei Ueshiro passed away this morning from a stroke suffered this past Saturday.
The Ueshiro family is in the process of making funeral arrangements and we will post them when they are finalized.
I know I speak for all of us when I offer my sincerest condolences and
sympathy to the Ueshiro family and we are forever indebted to Master Ueshiro for the extraordinary gift of Shorin-Ryu karate that he brought to us from his homeland of Okinawa. We will continue to express our love and respect for this gift through the Shorin-Ryu tradition of always moving forward.
Thank you for your help and understanding during this sad occasion.
