We lost another martial arts pioneer and legend last night. SGM Pesare passed away. He will be truly missed by his Kempo Family and friends.

This is a great loss for all East Coast Kenpo students.

Whoever you may have trained with, if you are from the Chow-Emperado-Leoning-Gascon line someone in your lineage was trained by Grandmaster Pesare who brought our Art to New England.

I want to thank Professor Bishop for his timely acknowledgement and announcement of GM Pesare's passing on the Cafe.

Don't tell me how much you honor Sijo, if you don't respect his wishes.
