Master Tatsuo Suzuki 8th Dan Hanshi has died

Post  Daz Nugent on Tue Sep 27, 2011 11:11 am

It has been reported in the latest Martial Arts Illustrated that Master Tatsuo Suzuki 8th Dan Hanshi died on Tuesday, 12th July 2011 at the age of 83.

He was a direct student of Sensei Hironori Ohtsuka, the founder of Wado Ryu karate, and was one of the early pioneers in bringing Wado-Ryu karate to the UK.

I never trained with him myself but am aware that 10th Dan Dai Hanshi Phil Milner trained with him quite a lot and brought him to Yorkshire in the 70s to give a series of seminars.

As a member of the IBA may I pass on our condolences to his family, and to his students all around the world.

In 2009 Tatsuo Suzuki's autobiography was published - it is a short work of just 87 pages but his time in Sheffield with Phil Milner is mentioned. He describes Dai Hanshi Phil Milner as "one student who did a lot of crazy things".
