Farewell Sensei

A few shots of our sensei, Charlotte Dean, with Ernie Payne of Newcastle Sendai, and Marian, Willow Tree’s unofficial event photographer without whom this page would be far less interesting. These photos were taken at Sensei Dean’s final training session at Sendai before moving to London.
