Dear All,

It is with the greatest sadness that we have to let you know that Palma Sensei has passed away.

She had returned to Hungary for a short holiday late last month. During a check-up, they found cancer and she was admitted to hospital. She fought, as only Palma could, but passed away after this morning.

Palma was so special, to the dojo, to the students and to me. She will be missed dearly. We will be meeting in the dojo in Ranelagh tomorrow at 3pm to celebrate her life. We hope you can come.
