the United States Ju-Jitsu Federation, he was also the Founder of the
USA Karate Federation and the Central Tae Kwon Do Association. Hanshi

Organizations (WUKO) and the World Karate Federation (WKF) as well as
the Pan American Karate-do Union, the Pan American Karate-do Federation
and was serving at the USJJF Vice President at the time of his death. He
was a major leader in the international martial arts, and was most
instrumental in getting karate into the Pan American Games.
than a martial artist, Hanshi Anderson was a scholar, statesman, and
patriot that devoted his life to the betterment of the arts that he so
loved. A leader to many and mentor to all, he has taught and guided the
many leaders who will continue the work that he begun and ensuring a
lasting legacy in the martial arts community.
We extend our most
sincere condolences to Hanshi Anderson's family, friends, students and
all those whose lives he has enriched. He will be forever missed.
