Sensei Taylor posted on Monday pm that Namitome Hachidan Hanshi has left us. “Namitome sensei has passed away. I am devastated. The Canadian Jodo and Iaido sections owe a great debt to this teacher, both as an instructor and as a supporter of the CKF. Very few know just what he sacrificed for us, but those who do will never forget". Lets us not mourn his death, But instead Celebrate his life.
