    Default My Condolences...

    ... and prayers for Mark's family and friends. I hadn't met him in person, but enjoyed his presence and participation in many discussions here.

    Sincerely,

    Ah, bad news. I always enjoyed Mark's posts even though I don't do judo and I thought he had a very kind, patient but no-nonesense manner when it came to what he knew--which was a lot. He seemed always interested to peek in on other budo as well.

    Neil, terrible news about Dave Harris sensei as well. I went to his Greenlake dojo a number of times when I lived in Seattle, and one of his students was my first martial arts teacher. His method was phenomenal and I have very good memories of that time. This was the first I heard about it. If you go to his memorial, please bear a few good thoughts from me (even though you and I haven't met either.) Much appreciated and sorry for this loss as well.

    Mark was an excellent mod. He seemed considerate of e-budo's goals and enjoyed I think the open-discussion, helped foster it here. Certainly one of the defining posters.

    A few pictures of Mark and others. All taken at the Old Seattle Jujutsu Club in Seattle's Rainier Valley.

    Mark was doing a demo of something with Bluming, and I don't recall what. In any case, Bluming launched into a story and someone snagged this picture. This was 2001.

    Joe Svinth and Mark F pose as proud members of the Chunen Butori Ryu in 2002.

    This last one is of Bluming with Mark and Charles(forgot his last name) one of Joe Svinth's students. This was working on Bluming defense against a jab. This was in 2001.

    Default Farewell

    To read that bad news makes me sad. I only knew Mark from this site, and several PM and E-mail exchanges. To me, he was a really enrichment to e-budo, and I'm very sure that wasn't the only thing that made him precious.

    My condolences to Mark's family and all who knew and admired him.

    Unhappy Sad news

    As others have said, I was not able to meet mark personally, only here and some PM's. When I was diagnosed with MS he helped me with words of encouragement and some laymen's explanation of the different meds I was/would be going through. We shared a Judo background and had discussions that way also.

    He will be missed By those that knew him on E-Budo as well as in life.

    RIP Mark.
    With respect,

    I'll miss Mark's presence on the board, particularly his sometimes-curmugeonly crankiness and sense of humor, both of which shielded the heart of a mensch.





    Farewell, Mark.

    Man, just catching up to this thread. What a shock.

    I had some good discussions in past years, and I appreciated his knowledge and experience in Judo. I hope he passed it on to others.

    He'll be missed here. My condolences.

    This is so sad and shocking. Mark and I often PM'ed or emailed on Kata though we had not been so prolific of late.

    The thread on the Go-no-Kata was of particular interest to both of us and also posts concerning the Budokwai in London.

    RIP Mark

    Mark will be missed. Ialways enjoyed his posts on Judo and historical perspective. He was one of the first Judoka I met through the internet and I'll always regret never having met him in person.

    I have corresponded with Mark for years; he opened my mind and my eyes to a few things, and he also gave me MUCH encouragement over the years. I regret never having the opportunity to meet him in person.

    My condolences to his friends and family. He obviously imprinted himself positively on many lives, including mine.

    Rest in peace, my friend.
