On January 29, 2012 Yanagisawa Motohiro Sensei passed away, with 89 years of age. Yanagisawa Sensei, who had a very special appreciation for Portugal and the Portuguese practitioners, was a direct disciple of Funakoshi Gichin O-Sensei and friend of Hironishi Sensei and Egami Sensei. He occupied also, for many years, the charge of Chief Instructor of the Shotokan Dojo. On March 3, 2012 during a posthumous tribute to Yanagisawa Sensei organized by ASP in Almada, Georges Krug -- for whom Yanagisawa Sensei nurtured a very special friendship -- made a speech full of emotion, before a group of instructors who came from all around the country.
