David Carradine passes away.


Just got the word that Kung Fu TV legend and Hollywood actor David Carradine was found in his hotel room in Thailand supposedly hung by accident.

His body was found in the closet by a hotel maid, with a rope around his neck and parts of his body.

No doubt CSI Thailand is going to get in on this one.

I remember meeting David Carradine when I was a young teenager, at Madison Square Garden during one of Aaron Bank's Oriental World Of Self Defense shows. He seemed like a nice guy.

Here is an old clip of the Carradine that most of us will always remember, replete with the burning urn scene that was taken from Maestro Urban's story about Shaolin in his book The KaraTE DoJo.
