To the judo family

I have just received the news that John Anderson passed away at about 6 AM Eastern time this morning.

John was a founder of Shufu Yudanshakai, and a true sensei to many of us for decades. I will transmit additional information about further arrangements as I receive them from his family.

The Shufu website now has an expanded article about Mr. Anderson, which summarizes his judo career, from when he started learning judo to his many roles as a teacher and leader regionally and nationally.
