Very Important

Screening and medical tests for all martial art students before and bi yearly after are needed. Two years ago (I am now 66 years old) I was taking falls and teaching rolls and falls as if I was still 28 years old. This was very dangerous and dumb. Prof. Bobasan

Professor Steve McLaughlin words so true our heart is broken too.

My very good friend of the last 43 years has passed away.
Burkhard Bohm, was a cultured, educated, intelligent, and meaningful person. An excellent father with accomplished and wonderful children, a husband to an amazing wife Debi Laport whose support cannot be appreciated by us enough. A couple others should emulate.

...Bogi, studied jujitsu as if his life depended on it. Learning all of DanZan Ryu jujitsu to it's philosophical and martial depths. His dojo The Feather River Kodenkan established in 1998 was one of well known repute with excellent students.

As a Professor of DanZan Ryu Jujitsu, his sound advice, alternate points of view were always invaluable.
We could always trust what Bogi said and felt.

...His GeoHydrology business was helpful to the planet and the people. His hand-built home was just an example of the paradise he created for his family.

My deepest feelings of sympathy and support go to his wife Debi and their children.

...We could only hope to live a life as good as his. heart is broken.
