Log In / Out

Mark Hodel was truly a fixture in the Bujinkan, especially for those of us who trained in this region of the country. Many of you don't know this, but when I was going through some tough times with employment last year, he was one of the few that offered me some advice that only someone like my father would have said to me.

Looking back to the first time I met him, through the years of workshops, Gasshukus and seminars, up to the last time I spoke with him this past June, I know that I can't say that I knew him as well as many of you, but I think that I knew him well enough to be proud to have called him a friend. He was truly a man whose presence will be noticeably missed but never forgotten.

Deepest regrets and condolences,
