It is with regret that I write about the passing of Sensei Dennis Sammartino (12-7-09) at his home after a prolonged battle with cancer. Dennis and I trained with Sensei Dale Jenkins, starting in about 1973. He was a fine man who taught Isshinryu for many years at his dojo in Boonton, NJ. His desire to teach his understanding of Isshinryu was passed to his students, whom I hope will continue his legacy.
A viewing will take place this Friday (12-11-09) from 2-4 PM and from 7-9PM at: Iliff-Ruggerio Funeral Home in Newton, NJ. The web site is: www.iliff-ruggeriofuneralhome.com for further information
