Sensei Burmick Appleby

— July 17, 2016


Sensei Appleby started training in 1973 and was instrumental in the development of Taiho-Ryu. He was a member of the Taiho-Ryu Hall of Fame and produced many outstanding students and instructors in his 40 year career in Taiho-Ryu. He was a proud member of the infamous "Stuttgart Samurai", and along with Sensei Doyle Rowland and Sensei Garland Derden, produced some of our fiercest fighters who won numerous regional and national titles. He will be greatly missed.

Also see Sensei provided plenty of mirth and pain in the El Dorado News-Times.
