Former Nanquan player, Japan Wushu Team’s athlete in the past: Mr. Yuji Hirai has passed away suddenly on this May 5th. I’ve known it a few days ago.
He was really sincere, hard-working person, he was always neutral to everyone.
I’m extremely shocked and sad indeed.
He is a coach of Nanquan for Japan Wushu Team also, it’s a big loss for Wushu society in Japan.
In last year, one of my Wushu coach:Mr. Takeshi Takaura had passed away, he was also a former great Nanquan player in Japan Wushu Team, he was a coach and committee member for JWTF(Japan Wushu Taijiquan Federation), therefore these issues have made a huge loss for Wushu society in Japan.
