Passing of GM Vince Black
« on: March 03, 2019, 01:04:03 PM »
Dear Kajukenbo Ohana,

It is with great sadness that we must announce to you all the passing of Grandmaster Vince Black.

Grandmaster Vince impacted countless people during his long career, and he has transformed the lives of so many through his martial and medical instruction and treatments.  Many of us have benefited from his compassion, his immense and encyclopedic knowledge, and his unwavering dedication to his Teachers and the traditions of martial culture. 

For information about attending his upcoming memorial, please direct message me or email me at

Cards and letters of condolence may be sent to:
P.O. Box 36235
Tucson, AZ 85740

Those wishing to support Vince's vision to research, preserve, and promote traditional martial and medical arts, The North American Tang Shou Tao may make a tax-deductible donation to the association here:

On behalf of Kim Black and Vince’s family, thank you for your thoughts and prayers.
