We've had the priviledge to host Irv Sensei a few times in our 15 year existence. This is very sad news. RIP Irv Sensei.

It is with broken hearts that we share the news of our Sensei’s passing today. Irvin Faust Shihan was at home with his family when he passed on this morning. Sensei moved with power and grace through to the end, showing us all his true warrior spirit. He was a teacher, mentor, and father to so many. We send him and his family all of our love, gratitude, and deepest respect. Domo Arigato, Sensei. We love you.
