My condolences to his family, friends and students.

Does anyone know something more about Shigeo Izumi sensei and perhaps write something more about his legacy? e.g.,

    Who was his teacher and who are (were) his students?
    Did he visit United States and give seminars during his career?
    For those of you who met him, do you have any stories about his life and practice?


The Okikukai website ( http://www.okikukai.jp/English/ ) lists the head instructor of the Koza Dojo (Shigeo Izumi Sensei's dojo affiliation) to be Master Instructor Masanori Yonamine (Renshi 6th Dan):

I imagine Masanori Yonamine Sensei may be related to the other Yonamine Sensei with whom Americans are more familiar, Master Instructor Kosuke Yonamine Sensei (Hanshi 9th Dan) of the Sashiki Dojo Ginowan Dojo:

The writer, Keisuke Fujimoto (5th Dan) is listed as the Master Instructor of Shonan Fujisawa Dojo (rather than the Kanto branch):
