Let It be known that Grand Master Peter G. Urban’s last will and testament clearly states
that Nemo *Meaning* (NO ONE) will be named as Head of all Goju systems as his replacement,
because there can be no replacement.
He has placed his finest students in the position to govern their own selves, schools and organizations.
What he has done is given Instruction for all the appointed leaders of the Goju regions to form a congress
to address cohesiveness in ensuring that his mandatory 10 kata be taught specifically as he instructed leaving
all other forms and techniques to be determined by heads of Individual schools. If any question remains in doubt
as to what parameters that a U.S.A.Goju school is permitted, Grand Master Sekwii Sha is the appointed ombudsman
to the system and all concerns should be brought to his attention and his decision is final. To Sensei Sha's credentials,
he was the first African American In the country to be awarded Black Belter and Sensei by Master Urban and has been
a devoted disciple and friend through out there lives since their Introduction to one another at the age of 24, and that was in the early 60s.
Grand Master Sekwii Sha, 10th Dan
Founder of ShaNanDo Goju Ryu
