RIP Kancho

Today I attended the funeral of our Kancho, who died last week suddenly and unexpectedly at his home.

Barry William Bradshaw, 1939 - 2010

He will be sorely missed by his loving family, by his many friends and colleagues, and by the incredible number of students he taught, mentored and befriended in over 50 years as a martial arts instructor.  He lives on in all of us, as does his legacy.

He was a very special man.
I feel lucky to have known him and to have seen the wonderful influence he has had on his students (and you in particular)
