Fire ceremony for Sensei Kallenbach, Amsterdam, 28 november 2021


Sunday november, 28th, we had a beautiful and deserving Shinto fire ceremony for the Soul of Jan Kallenbach Sensei in the Shinto dojo by Shinto priest Paul de Leeuw.

The fire attracted the spirit of Jan sensei to help it in transition to the eternal light.



It was a humble and beautiful ceremony and was performed with great dignity and warmth. With Jan Hein Kallenbach, Kees Kallenbach, Jolanda de Jong, Marion de Vries, Rob Conradi and the Shin-ShinBuKen board.

The spirit of Jan sensei will continue in our hearts and he will become one of the kami who will inspire many Budoka.
