Sad News

Posted: November 11, 2016 by alansmurf in Uncategorized

It is with great sadness that I have to pass on the news that our great friend and teacher John Plumbridge Sensei has died today after a short illness.

He was in St Peters hospital and Barb his wonderful better half was with him.

He is gone to the tatami in the sky…. Seoi t oshi will never be the same again.

I will update everyone with arrangements next week.

Our Sensei will always be remembered as a great martial artist a great friend and a gentleman.

    Thanks for sharing, really sorry to hear such sad news. Sensei John was such an inspiration – a warm, interesting and funny man with time for everyone and very modest despite his martial arts skills. Really enjoyed John’s teaching at Spelthorne and especially the extra groundwork sessions he took time to run at Ember Court. He was a gentleman, with a great line in jokes, and I’m very glad to have known him. Mel.
