It is with great sadness and heavy heart that I inform you that our Sensei, Michael Payne Sensei, Kendo Renshi 6 Dan, passed away tonight at age 71 after battling with pancreatic cancer.  Michael Payne Sensei was the chief instructor of Sydney Kendo Club for many years and it would be hard to find a more passionate and devoted kendo instructor than Michael.  Over the years, he has taught and brought up many new kendo players and champions.  His passing is an incredible loss to the NSW Kendo community.

I will let you know as soon as any information regarding the memorial service become available.
