To the judo community:

Our friend and Sensei Jimmy Takemori passed away this morning (May 15th) after a brief illness.

Funeral arrangements will be forthcoming. I will send the details to everyone on this distribution list as soon as I receive them from the family.

Since Jimmy was so widely known, loved, and respected, please forward this message to as many judo people as you can.

Details are available on the Shufu website
