I liked Paul Gomez the instant I met him!

Extremely knowledgeable in our Art, and extremely willing to share everything he knew. I spent time with Paul at the NTI and a number of other venues. He was a genuinely good person, and, when he talked, I listened!

Paul died Sunday, in Seattle, apparently from complications with his diabetes. I didn’t even know he had diabetes!

Paul was just shy of his 41st birthday. Every practitioner of our Art has lost a great colleague, martial artist, and fellow Operator. I will miss him!

Rest in peace, Partner. Rest in peace.
