I know that this is not a European martial arts instructor or any kind of Asatru or Heathen, but he was a great teacher, a good man and a great inspiration to me and several of my instructors over the years so I am spreading the word.
Grandmaster Professor Wally Jay Has Died! Around 2:30am May 29, 2011 the martial arts community lost one of the great masters of our time. He will be truly missed by many around the world.
Professor Wally Jay was truly a pillar of the jujitsu and martial arts community throughout the world. I had the pleasure of working with him numerous times over the past three decades after learning what great instructor he was through my Shotokan Sensei Patrick Murphy and my Judo Sensei Walter Douglas. Prof Jay was a very patient and insightful sensei who always continued to grow in the art. He had a certain charm mixed with a good sense of humor. While the martial arts community will miss Prof Jay we will continue to remember his teachings, his patients, and his great sense of humor as we continue to train and teach our own Martial arts to all of our students.
Hail to the Warriors, Skal to the Fighter,
