To: All Sifus, Black Belts and Students of Mo Duk Pai From: Professor Fred King re: the passing on of Sifu Brian BennettThursday, April 14th a wonderful person and Sifu passed on. As many of you may know Sifu Brian had terminal cancer for some months now. I know many of you had the opportunity to say good-by to him before he left and it was, per him, greatly appreciated. I had the honor to spend some time with him the previous week and we spoke about his training, his love for his teacher (Sifu Hosman) and all the help he’s received over the years from the student body. He was extremely greatful for all of that. I was able to speak to his mother who was extremely proud of her son and his last months and how he dealt with it all. There’s so much to say about Brian—the big man with the big heart, the gentleness and power, his laugh and curiosity, his wanting that others do well—all admirable qualities for anyone. We were lucky to have had him with us. He gave more than he took. Thanks Brian.Your journey will be a good one………..it’s well deserved.
