I have trained under Master Vincent for ten plus years in Taekwondo and for six years in jiujitsu. Whenever I saw him in the dojang it was rare to see a frown on his face. He loved what he did, and he especially loved his students. I was lucky to have him as a mentor and I will miss him dearly. I send my condolences to his family.
