Kenpo honour guard at Fabians funeral
A SPECIAL MESSAGE FROM MR. SPEAKMAN TO KENPO 5.0 STUDENTS ALL OVER THE WORLD:
TO MY FRIEND AND STUDENT
A beautiful spirit walked this earth who took the body and name of Fabian Niwa. Although his transition to the other side is now complete his time on this earth was an expression of what the best of being human can be. The many lives he touched with his wisdom, strength and kindness will live on and in turn will bestow these virtues to the many generations to follow. I hold that the meaningfulness of one’s life can be measured by the contributions one makes to the common good. Fabian, my friend and student your life’s energies will live on in us all and we will remember you in the beauty of the hummingbirds flight, the crash of the waves upon the shores and the majestic presence of an old growth forest.
Let it be known that I, Jeff Speakman as the head of the Kenpo 5.0 family on this day of August 24th, 2012 have promoted Fabian Niwa to the status of 3rd Degree Black Belt. It is with loving respect that I bestow this honor and continue to dedicate myself to the greater purpose of the art of being human. Thank you Fabian.
Loyally, your Kenpo family.
