Sensei Phil Wells passed away on Friday the 8th of June 2012. Phil was a well liked and respected member of Seishikan. He achieved his 4th Dan in September 2011. And was a heavy weight champion in the JKF in the mid 90's. Seven years ago he started the Kongorong Dojo and was its instructor during that time. 

Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family and friends in this difficult time. You will be missed Phil.
