SENSEI JEFF SANDERS 4th Dan
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I have to report the passing of our great friend and Ex-Chief Instructor for SSKI USA, Sensei Jeff Sanders 4th Dan, who passed away peacefully in hospital early in the morning of Tuesday 5th February. Jeff had been suffering for approximately just over two years with ALS which is, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in the USA and which in the UK is more widely known as Motor Neurone Disease.
Jeff was not only a great karateka and instructor but a wonderful friend who I stayed with and his family in his home in Urbana, Ohio many, many times. I feel a huge hole has appeared in my personal life and I will miss him greatly and his wonderful sense of humour. We had some fantastic times together and my love, condolences and best wishes go to his lovely wife, Lisa and to his son Bishop, who is also a 4th Dan with SSKI, and also to his daughter, Mary Rose and his other son AJ.
A sad, sad day. RIP Jeff.
