I am sorry to bring the news, but I am sure some of you knew him and would like to know.  I received this notice recently.  Sifu Endrizzi was a great man and martial artist.  We are all sorry to see him go so soon.


---- Quoted report----
Leonard Endrizzi, one of Sifu Al Dacascos top Black Belts, retired from the
martial arts because of illness in 2001, passed away Friday, May 10, 2005 in
Portland, Oregon.   He was 63 years old and served on the board of Directors in
the International Kajukenbo Association, 1989-1994.

Sifu Endrizzi,
I remember training with Sifu Endrizzi, he was from the old school way of training. He give his all to you, but you had to pay him back with sweat and blood. He will be missed by the diehards who liked training in the old school way. No babies in his classes! Sifu Ben Fajardo

Sifu Endrizzi's work is being carried on by his widow, Louiselle Rousseau, and by his few black belts.

I was one of Sifu Leonard's students BITD in Denver. We kept in touch via email for the last few years. I miss his insight and humor the most. A great man and teacher
