"A Friend in Need"
Posted 5/03/2005 12:39pm [from Jun Akiyama]

Editor's note: I have just received permission from Dennis Hooker to post the following: Kevin Sparkman Sensei is one of my oldest students he is also like a member of my family. He started training with me as a teenager and now he is in his early 40's. He in an instructor in Nashville Tenn. Those of you that know him probably remember the body chiseled out of stone and the incredible dedication and power of his Aikido. We found out last week that Kevin has an inoperable, malignant tumor that has integrated into the brain stem. Several of the ASU 6th dans will be doing a benefit seminar to help out with some expenses. It will be here at the Shindai Dojo in Orlando Florida. Steve Fasen the Shindai Dojo Cho is working on the dates. I will post them as soon as I know. I will be going to Nashville soon to teach a small seminar there as well. Dates will follow. Please place Kevin on your prayer list or send some good thoughts his way. Thank you, Dennis Hooker www.Shindai.com
