On the morning of May 27, 2020, Lawrence C. Hawkins, Jr., Esq., Kyoshi passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family. Yoseikan Anderson wishes to express our sincere condolences to Lawrence C. Hawkins, III, Esq., Shihan and the rest of the Hawkins family. Kyoshi Hawkins was the Chief Advisor and Chairman Emeritus of the United States Chito-ryu Karate Federation in addition to being special to us because he was Shihan Shawna Lingo's teacher and helped inspire her in the martial arts.  Several of us had the privilege of learning from Kyoshi Hawkins first-hand and have many great memories.  He will always be in our hearts and watching over us.
