Fujisawa Shuko Sensei passed away earlier today at the age of 83.
Shuko Sensei was born on June 14th, 1925. He is mostly famous for winning Kisei, the top Japanese title in his 50s for six times in a row, from 1976 to 1981. More details about his career can be found here.
I recently posted a video from a study group meeting organized by Shuko Sensei. I’m adding the video below.
