Passing of Paul Broeders sensei – Ballarat Dojo
It is with a heavy heart and great sadness that I must inform you of the passing of Paul Broeders sensei of the Australian Ballarat Shibu. Paul was very passionate and dedicated sensei, his loss is a blow to all of us in Daito-ryu Australia. Paul recently practiced with us at the Gold Coast Dojo during Annoiki sensei's recent visit to Australia. He was in good health at that time and practiced with all who attended the seminar. This is how I will remember him, sharing his knowledge and passion for Daito-ryu. Paul passed away on Saturday afternoon, on his rural property, he was out walking when he must have suffered a heart attack. My thoughts are with his family and his students who will feel this loss most deeply.
