    Larry Hartsell, RIP

    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.

            Shit. And I was seriously contemplating about inviting him up for a seminar. Jeez, that's so young these days.

                        This is exactly why people need to learn as much as they can, from as many people as they can, before they're not here to learn from anymore...

                        The "old masters" of our generation, and our teachers' generations, are getting older. There isn't much time left before they'll move on as well...

                            Very sad.

                            As recently as yesterday, there was a birthday card for him on the counter at my gym, awaiting the signatures of any who wished to sign it. It's just a little bit sadder knowing that it'll never be sent.

                              Larry was my JKD teacher's first teacher.

                              RIP Mr. Hartsell.
