IN MEMORY OF: Master Carl Beaman of the ABA

My belated posting of the American Bando Association's Facebook status of June 14, 2013:

The Martial Arts world has lost another Great... on Wednesday, June Wednesday, June 12th, Master Carl Beaman passed away from a massive stroke. 

Well known by many for his Boxing, Kickboxing (Bando / Burmese Kickboxing) instruction, as well as teaching what it means to be the right kind of man & martial artist. "His skills, passion, and commitment to the arts were unmatched. Our world is better for having had him here, and worse for having lost him."

Our thoughts and prayers are with Carl, his family, students, and friends as this chapter of his life comes to a close.

My sincerest condolences to Master Carl Beaman's loved ones, associates, friends and students.

I was reminiscencing on old times and thought about my former instructor this morning. I decided to look him up online and was hurt to find this. I wish someone had contacted me about this so I could come and offer my last respects because I was a student of Master Beaman and won trophies. He taught me a lot and indeed was an excellent instructor. Under him, I won the kickboxing championship title in Catonsville, MD in 1979, a first in Bando's history because I was the first woman to win that title. Although late, I offer my condolences to and prayers for the family because the loss of a loved one leaves a painful, very slow-healing wound.
