We have lost a true Kajukenbo friend.  I knew Master Mike Young for many years and always treated with respect.  He was a martial artist, historian, not only for Kajukenbo, but many of the other Hawaii practitioners.  He was instrumental in introducing Sijo and other Kajukenbo practitioners to the Chinese martial arts community.  I sadden to lose a dear friend, but now he can be with Sijo and their memories will live forever.  God Bless….may he rest in peace.
