Lucky enough to meet the Master
Mon Mar 15, 2004 21:26

I was grading for my purple belt when I was lucky enough to meet Ed Parker, I found him a very happy man and pleased to be anywhere he was. He joked around with all of the students and unfortunately for me I did not get the initiating blow that comes with a new belt due to a previous injury that was not healing quick enough. I was very disappointed, because I would have taken that hit from him just for the honor. And many who have known him would agree it would have been a good hit because his hands looked liked they could match the size and strength of a bear's paw.
When I heard of his passing I found myself lucky enough to have known him even for that brief moment.
