It was with sadness that on Monday 27th December 2010 we received the news of the sudden passing of our dear friend Miya Sovetnikova.
Those of us lucky enough to have known this very special lady even in this moment of sadness can take comfort and strength in remembering her smile, her warmth and positive outgoing charisma that made you feel good even if things seemed bad, her very entrance into the dojo brought energy to everyone.
Miya was more than just my student she was my friend and mentor enquiring nearly every day about my health and often telling me off if she thought that I was doing something wrong.
I could write a whole book about Miya, her funny ways, her great sense of humor but its enough to say that she touched the hearts of all of us and I know that I speak on behalf of everyone.
Yes Miya we will sadly miss you but your spirit will always live inside each of us and the Misogikan Dojo.
Your Friend and Sensei
