Tamura Sensei passed away in July 2010.

I met him by chance in Lyon Sensei (he was invited to a seminar).

He was a friend of my teacher's husbandat at MIE Highschool.

Thanks to Tamura Sensei, I could create SINONOME in France and Japan and meet my friends aikidoka YAMADA sensei, Fukakusa sensei, Funakoshi sensei, MARIKO san (TAKAMIZO sensei) and the Sensei of AIKIKAI .

For us, Japanese, any encounter has been created by fate, it never happens by chance.

I always keep this Japanese spirit for foreign martial arts practitioners.

I want to offer high quality martial arts  equipment.
