Sept 1, 2012 - Kickboxing great Joe Lewis passed away!!
It is without a doubt one of the greatest losses to the martial arts world, Joe Lewis passed away yesterday on August 31 due to cancer. He was a supreme fighter and that is what and how he taught his students. My limited time spent with Joe was one of good memories, he had a great sense of humor and he loved to joke around. Joe and I had a common bond, we both belonged to the same brotherhood of the U.S. Marine Corps and we both studied karate in Okinawa. Please say a prayer for Joe and his family, he will be missed but never forgotten. Rest in Peace Joe, Semper Fi. "Darrell Jordan " - Founder, WVTAA
