    I heard of Soke Kenzo Mabuni (Shi to Ryu) passing away very recently. Can anyone confirm this?

    If this is true, then it's a sad day, indeed.

    It is true, he's died.

    On top of that, he hadn't designated an heir to the style, so now there will be difficulties with regards to maintaining the style.

    RIP, Mabuni Soke.

    Thanks for the information, Roundeyesamurai.

    I hope there isn't a power struggle, and wish the best of luck to the Shi to Ryu style.
