Really sorry to hear that Sifu Hartsell died. He was one of the first people of note in Martial Arts in this area, and has been well known and acknowledged almost as long as I've been training. His passing is sad news to us all.

My condolences to his family and his students as well. I remember the sense of loss when Toyoda Sensei died, and it's only fitting to remember them with respect and the love of friends who truly care. A sad day indeed.

65 yrs. old, he was always a solid built healthy looking man.

On the high note I'm sure he would be proud of his legacy and all the people he has touched as in WW ending statement from the movie KOH.

Thats is one thing about teachers their lessons, techniques and thoughts lives on in the students and people that they have taught and mentally touched through the study of the MAs.

Sifu Hartsell job well done.

Marc ("Crafty Dog") Denny had this to say about Larry Hartsell:

Quote:

I first met/experienced Sifu Larry around 1986 at the Inosanto Academy (the one at Glencoe Ave). He was giving a one day seminar and needed someone to volunteer as an assistant. I had just finished three years with Paul Vunak and figured I was up to it. What followed was an amazing day of trapping-grappling. The next day I went to a chiropractor, who had many stuntmen and athletes as clients. Upon adjusting me said she had never had anyone with that many vertabrae needing an adjustment :-)

Sifu Larry was serious about staying in fighting shape. He even took a weight set with him to Spain one time.

In recent years, upon my going upstairs to teach my Saturday class at the Inosanto Academy sometimes I would see him there teaching privates or working out for himself. I remember in particular one time I arrived about an hour early to get in a workout for myself and there he was, already working out on the heavy bag. The pace and power would have been impressive for a much younger man, but were quite remarkable for a man of his age. After about 45 minutes non-stop (!) he paused and I complimented him and told him that he inspired me. He seemed pleased, and went back to work.

To live with the knowledge of our death is perhaps Life's greatest challenge for us, and to do so knowing that our time is going to be shorter due to health reasons is perhaps the hardest of all. When recently I saw him teach, it was obvious that his health was weakening, but there was no complaint. He had his Art and he walked as a Warrior for all his days.






Well said.

He was an insperation for many of us older folks. I was glad I had the chance to train with him and talk to him about the times he has had. His books are good also.

I am sorry I did not get to a seminar this year. He will be missed.
My condolances to all of his friends and family.

I knew of the man by media only. However, it saddens me greatly to hear that he is gone from this earth. May he rest in peace.

I adhere to the principles of JKD from Bruce Lee's published notes, and as such am sad to admit that I've not really heard much of Sifu Hartsell, save his legacy as a grappler. From what I have heard, he was an amazing man. Rest in peace.

I would also like to extend my sympathies to those who knew him well. I've read and studied his books, and i have a lot of respect for him. Along with Bruce, he helped show us the way through his branching out of what he was taught. RIP

It seems like just yesterday when Sifu Harstell was twisting and tossing many of us all over the mat. A true martial arts legend.
Thank you for so much!
Goodbye my friend and teacher. It has been an honor to have known you. Say hi to Bruce...
