My Sensei

Dojo Family:

On June 11, 2016 Jim Mitchum posted about the passing of Sensei Mitchum, his father.  Most of you have kept abreast of the situation through Facebook.

Sensei Mitchum suffered a massive stroke during the weekend of June 4th.  He was unable to recover and passed on June 11th.  Jim and his family were by his side.  John and Cindy Ingram got to see him.  John Bartusevics and I spoke to him on Friday as well.

I spoke to him on June 1st and he was excited to be coming to Detroit again.  He and Jim were to travel here on June 23rd, then all of us were participating with Sensei Willie Adams and the KIAI during the weekend. We had a short seminar planned for Sensei Adams, then a good weekend of fellowship.

There is not much to say at this point, I struggle for words.  He was my Sensei, I can only say I loved him.  I was blessed to have him and only wanted to serve him in whatever small capacity that I could.

As more information comes in I will share it.

Sensei Dan Holloway
