    I just found this out it happened the 18th of June 2012. I am saddened to hear of this passing a very knowledgeable person and unfortunately I never got a chance to work with him. http://www.ikigaiway.com/2012/tribute-to-oyata-seiyu-ryu-te-10th-dan-1930-2012/

    I was fortunate enough to meet Oyata Sensei at a seminar in Texas. A true martial artist and a true gentleman.

    Rest well.

    I have been away from MT for a little bit. My instructor called me the morning before we got the news that he had passed away....

    Oddly he asked me if I have had any weird dreams lately...and weirdly enough, I had one about Oyata.

    Later that night, we knew it must have been a sign or something...believe it or not....this happened to me.

    Oyata was One of the last true Masters.
