Ruiz, Roldan and Volrath
Here are Shihan Frank Ruiz, Founder of Nisei GoJu, and Hanshi Wilfredo Roldan, current head of Nisei. At top of cover is Master Ted Volrath, who when my student John Libutti lost his leg in a motorcycle accident, traveled many hours to accompany me at Libutti's bedside at St. Vincents Hospital in NYC. Volrath was later instrumental in our bringing Libutti back to regular life.
