Gojuryu Pioneer, Nantambu Camara Bomani Sensei passed away

 

It is with great sadness that I post this;

Gojuryu Pioneer, Nantambu Camara Bomani Sensei passed away of a Massive Heart Attack and was layed to rest in Accra, Ghana, West Africa.

Bomani Sensei was a student of Miyazato Eiichi Sensei's since 1968. He was a true pioneer of gojuryu, through his efforts he spread Jundokan Gojuryu and the OGKK to various dojo on two continents.  Since the 1970s, he had founded several Jundokan Dojo in the USA (NY, KY, OH and WA) and Africa (Tanzania and Ghana). Bomani Sensei introduced Jundokan Gojuryu to Tanzania and Ghana. He was the founder of the Okinawa Gojuryu Karate-do Kyokai Jundokan USA, Tanzania Jundokan Okinawa Gojuryu Karate-do Kyokai and West Africa Jundokan Okinawa Gojuryu Karate-do Kyokai, all with the approval of Miyazato Sensei.

He was a great teacher, friend, role model and inspiration, he will be missed.
