Liam O'Brien, Kyoshi 7th dan has passed away on 28/8/2015 in the United Kingdom


It is with great sadness, that we have to inform you that the United Kingdom’s Kyudo teacher Liam O’Brien Kyoshi 7th dan passed away, on the 28/8/2015.

Although this loss will be felt most acutely by all the members of the United Kingdom Kyudo Association, O’Brien sensei’s influence was far reaching. With unparalleled Japanese dojo experience under the direct guidance of Takeuchi sensei, no one else had that depth of knowledge of Japanese culture and old school Kyudo training.

Kind regards,
Ray Dolphin
