Feeling heartbroken: Just got the news my teacher and greatest grappler and coach in the world, "Judo" Gene LeBell died today. He taught everyone from Bruce Lee to Rhonda Rousey (among many other greats). He was also an accomplished no holds barred fighter, and stuntman.
Thank you Master LeBell for everything you taught me and so many others. God Bless You and Your Family. Rest in Peace sir.
