We sadly advise of the passing of AKWF member Erle Montaigue. Erle was a foundation member of the Australian Kung Fu Federation and the first person to be awarded life membership to this organization.
AKWF President Walt Missingham commented:
“Erle will be greatly missed he was both a colleague and a friend. Erle was a great contributor in the early days of the Federation and he served as President of the Federation in 1987 as well as Vice President in 1986 and 1988 to 1994. He was a great national and global ambassador for the martial arts � we are all the poorer for his passing. I extend my sincere thanks to Erle and my sympathies to Sandy and their children”.
