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.

Words cannot express how much I will miss Master Vincent. I am so heartbroken by his sudden passing. My heart goes out to his family. He was a gold standard of how we ought to live and he taught us just as much about how to be a decent human as he did in martial arts. I will miss him and his classes so much. For some reason he loved using me as the "uki" and it was my honour to comply. I will miss his story telling, his coaching, his personality, his presence. He always encouraged "excellence, not perfection" and staying mentally focused. I will forever be grateful for the opportunity to learn from him and to go to as many of his noon classes as I could. He was one of my favourite humans. He will always be "My Master Vincent". Condolences to all his family members - I can't begin to imagine how much you all will miss him.

When I was a teenager I would attend Sensei Viele's Friday night jiu jitsu classes in Niagara Falls, and see him at inter-school events. I always admired the technical nature of his approach. But what sticks out to me as I reflect more on his legacy is that I still remember, decades later, moments when he stood forth as a force for doing the right thing. I am truly grateful. I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

I was so sad to hear of your sudden passing. You were my friend and mentor and I learned so much from you. I will always remember the time and patience you had in guiding me in my martial arts. You will be missed.

Master Vincent will be missed. Master Vincent trained me and my daughter. I'll never forget the first time i met him when doing afternoon class at the secord TKD studio. He was always smiling and ready to teach with the grip of a bear.

I'll never forget the lessons of a proper chokehold and how to break fall. It was an honor to have him there for my first and second degree belts pushing me and the other students to do our very best.

You will be missed

Training and learning under Master Vincent was a privilege and honour that my wife, son, and I will always cherish. He was a wonderful teacher and a kind master. He always shook his head and laughed at me as he told me "you're working too hard". And then he would proceed to flip me on my back while barely moving.
We will miss him deeply. Our hearts and thoughts are with the family at this time.

A long time Director and senior instructor in the Canadian Jiu Jitsu Council, Sensei Viele was a direct student of Shihan Ron Forrester, the Father of Canadian Jiu Jitsu and the founder of the Canadian Jiu Jitsu Council.

During his time as an instructor, Sensei Viele changed the lives of many people, teaching not only skills that apply in the Dojo but skills that enriched the lives of his students in general.

Sensei Viele will be deeply missed.

On behalf of the Canadian Jiu Jitsu Council, I offer my condolences to Sensei Viele's family.
