I’ve never met or trained with Richard, but enjoy his contribution to karate analysis. Recently Richard travelled to attend a seminar with Iain Abernethy sensei (interviewed back in Episode 9 of the the podcast). On the way home Richard had a seizure and was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Richard had emergency surgery and is slowly recovering.
Richard has a long road to recovery ahead of him, and Noah has setup a GoFundMe for Richard’s Brain Surgery.
Richard, his family and friends have a lot to deal with in the coming days, weeks and months, and any contribution would go long way to helping them all.
Richard and Noah make an important contribution to the karate community, and hopefully the karate community that benefits can make a contribution in return.
