With great sadness I say good bye to Igor Makdulin. A senior member of Genyukan and a longtime student of Ryushin Shouchi Ryu. He trained with a strong spirit and unwavering resolve. He was a man who was confident that he could build anything with his bare hands (and he usually did.) I will always remember our locker room conversations about traveling, making swords and martial arts. It was an honor to have met you. You will be greatly missed. - Val

Igor, we miss you...
