Départ de Raf Bernaers / Heengaan van Raf Bernaers

FR: Nous venons d’apprendre le décès d’un ami, d’un pionnier du kendo Belge et Européen. Ce soir, Raphaël Bernaers, Raf, nous a quitté après une vie mené tambour battant au service du kendo Belge et Européen, voir mondial. Cet architecte est à la base de la bible des grades de l’EKF. Pendant de longues années il fut secrétaire général de l’EKF et occupa différents postes au sein de l’ABKF. La fédération Japonaise lui remit un diplôme en reconnaissance de son action au profit de nos disciplines.
Il s’est éteint, soutenu par sa famille et ses proches après avoir livré un dernier combat contre la maladie. Nous tenons à présenter nos plus sincères condoléances à sa famille, amis et proches.
Pensez à lui lors de votre prochain keiko…

Vanavond vertrok Raphael Bernaers, Raf, na een intens leven ten dienste van het Europese, Belgische en zelfs wereld Kendo gebeuren. Deze architect is onder andere aan de basis van de bijbel van het EKF register voor dangraden. Hij bekleedde de functie van secretaris generaal van EKF en verschillende posten binnnen ABKF.
De Japanse federatie erkende zijn inzet door hem een speciale oorkonde uit te reiken ter herkenning van deze inzet ten dienste van onze disciplines.
Hij verliet ons omringd door familie en naasten na een laatste strijd tegen de ziekte.We staan erop om onze innige deelneming te betuigen aan zijn familie, vrienden en naasten.
Gedenk hem in uw eerstvolgende keiko…

Oda Sensei

It is with very deep sadness that we inform you that Oda Katsuo sensei Iaido 8th Dan Hanshi & Kendo 7th Dan Kyoshi passed away yesterday.

He had been coming to Belgium for more than 28 years and has had an overriding influence and involvement in Iaido development in Belgium. His love for Kendo and Iaido and joy outside of the dojo will be missed. The ABKF and all his members thank you for everything sensei.

All our condolences to his family, students and friends, may he rest in peace!
