Important Announcement- Passing of our President Hanshi Hassan Dilaimi

Important Announcement- Passing of our President Hanshi Hassan Dilaimi
| MAFI | London | 2015 |
 
HANSHI HASSAN DILAIMI
1934 - 2015

It is with deep regret to announce the passing of our President and Chief Instructor Hanshi Hassan Dilaimi who passed away in Ghana on 7th July 2015.

He was not only the President of our association but a great master and mentor to our members and Karate-Ka.
He began Karate as a boy and attained his first black belt as an adult in India.

On 9th December 2012 he was awarded 9th Dan.
He founded (as President) the Oriental Karate Association in the UK in the early 1970s teaching Shotokan Karate. As that grew it became the Martial Arts Federation Great Britain and finally the Martial Arts Federation International which was etablished to accomodate the ever growing number of clubs internationally.
He was respected throughout the karate community by those who knew him and his loss is a great one to Karate and to the martial arts.
Our thoughts are with his family and those who were closest to him.
 
It is now our duty as martial artists to carry his legacy forward and pass his teachings down to future generations.
 
With respect to Hanshi.
MAFI
