1. In Memoriam We here at Martial Arts View all mourn the loss of our good friend and brother martial artist James Cama who passed away in Brooklyn, NY recently. Sifu Cama was a truly a "martial artist's martial artist," who attained high levels of skill in arts as diverse as Goju Ryu, Fut Sao Wing Chun and Southern Praying Mantis. Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family. The loss of such a unique individual diminishes us all. He will be deeply missed.
