Leonie Huf Memorial Trophy 2016

The recipient for the Leonie Huf Memorial Trophy 2016 is Senpai Anthony.


Leonie Huf, a former student, passed away tragically over 25 years ago whilst training in class. She was a dedicated student who enjoyed training and socialising with other students.
Each year her husband Peter dedicates this special award to a Zenshin student who displays enthusiasm, strong spirit and determination in their attitude to life.

Hanshi has selected Senpai Anthony to be honoured with the award for 2016.
Congratulations Senpai Anthony.
