We lost a beloved sensei earlier this month. Wade Susie, sensei at the White Marsh Dojo in Maryland died on June 14 after a long illness. He was 69. Wade and his wife Karen practiced and taught martial arts for forty years. They created and led a dojo in which affection and a family atmosphere prevailed and which at the same time generated a warrior spirit among their students, who won over 300 trophies in competitions. A longer obituary will be published later this month in the Summer 2017 AJA newspaper.
