It’s with enormous sadness that I pass on the news that Lindsey Musing Sensei passed away on Friday, 27 January 2017, after a short and unexpected illness.
Lindsey founded Kanzenki Karate in September 2007 and ran the club until 2015, when she had to step down due to persistent back problems. She loved karate and was devastated that she had to give it up - indeed, even when she was unable to train she would often come along and lead the training session.
That Kanzenki Karate is still going is thanks to the dedicated efforts Sensei Lindsey made in her organisation and running of the club, and the special bond between the practitioners that she created.
With much love to her family, especially our fellow karateka - her two wonderful children, Louisa and Max - from all at Kanzenki.
Lindey Musing Sensei began training in martial arts in 2002, taking Shotokan karate under the instruction of Don Gillies Sensei. She trained three times a week working her way through the kyu grades, achieving 1st dan in 2007 and 2nd dan in 2009. She regularly attended the organised AMA summer camps every year since 2003 in Paris, working with many different experienced dan grade Instructors.
