Well, how wonderful this is. My good friend Jim is something very special in the world of martial arts, but more important, he is a very special person as all who know him/have known him/can attest.

He is truly the finest example of the 'jutsu/do' of the Uechi martial discipline.

There really should be a book written about him/about his great skills in performance and teachings, and about his love for his friends and his fellow man.

His loyalty has no equal...he is a man who can be trusted 100%...a man who will never let you down once befriended.

Heartfelt congratulations Jim, you are a true Canadian Diamond. 8)
