kodoan memorial day

Old picture of Grandmaster Sid Hallburn and I. Sid was a World War 2, Korean War and Vietnam Conflict Veteran. Sid started out in the U.S. Army, then the Army Air Corps and, finally, the United States Air Force. He was a tenth degree black belt (the highest level that only a handful in history have attained) in Judo, a Black Belt Hall of Famer (sat on the board at Black Belt Magazine for 17 years) and friend of the likes of Bruce Lee and Chuck Norris.

He would throw me around well into his nineties.

I miss you old friend.
