It is with great sadness that we inform that our countryman and Founder of Seigokan Brazil, Luís Pedruco Sensei passed away today, March 9, 2010.
Pedruco Sensei succumbed to a severe and galloping brain tumor, detected in October 2009.
Just recently, in August 2009, he was in Italy visiting Francesco Cuzzocrea Shihan from Italy Seigokan, in Reggio Calabria.
Luís Alberto da Silva Pedruco was a contemporary of José Martins Achiam Shihan and one of his former students.
In 1970 immigrated to Brazil and there founded the Seigokan of Brazil, together with Acaio Sensei.
It was a great person.
Peace to his soul.
