This morning, we received the very sad news of the loss of one of the founders of our Federation. Mr Jacques Dupont passed away at the age of 83.
He was one of the founders of our group but also the first EKF General Secretary. His contribution to Kendo in Europe was unanimously recognized.
We have lost a great man, some of us have lost a friend. Our profound condolences go to his wife and family…
