Notice that Sifu Larry Hartsell passed away yesterday at the age of 67.
Mr. Hartsell started training in judo and wrestling in the late 1950s. Following a tour of duty in Vietnam, he returned to California and became a student of Bruce Lee's. He was a pioneer in applying Lee's Jeet Kune Do approach to grappling and wrestling methods and produced a series of magazine articles, books and training tapes on Jeet Kune Do grappling.
Mr. Hartsell had a degree in criminology and ten years of experience in law enforcement, and was also an experienced bodyguard and trainer for football teams including the Dallas Cowboys and San Fransisco 49ers.
Rest in peace.

You can't practice Judo just to win a Judo Match! You practice so that no matter what happens, you can win using Judo!
The key to fighting two men at once is to be much tougher than both of them.
