Sad news.

I am saddened to have to report the loss of a good friend and GoJu brother.

Hanshi, Walter Parks, 10th Dan, U.S.A.G.A. of Massachusetts passed away on Wednesday February 25, 2009.

Hanshi Parks was a long time practitioner and teacher of the martial arts. The legacy that he left can be seen in fine dojos throughout the New England region.

His loyalty and service to our system, and to Maestro Urban was always above and beyond the call of duty.

It is with no reservations that I can say that he will be missed.

Condolences and questions about funeral arrangements etc. should be sent to Hanshi Parks' student, Sensei, Gary Gascoyne:
