Hey Red Dragon Community,

We hope you're all doing well, staying current, adapting and staying safe!

In these difficult times, we're excited to offer families and communities an option to take action rather than have to sit and wait for our current environment to change. Please share the updated version of our online classes with those you love, we're asking if you could share this video with everybody who you know would like to take on something to do from home, learn self defense, start moving and get in a great workout instead of sitting still... from anywhere!

We thank you, as always, for your support in what we offer the communities that we are fortunate to be involved. The Red Dragon Community is ever evolving, growing, and we appreciate each and every one of you. Please stay safe!

A final “Bow” to Dennis Lynch (Nidan)

Denny, I had to do something today that I’ve never done before, say good bye to a friend. I get it now, when people say they feel so helpless, they want to do something to fix it. Fix it for themselves, fix it for the family. Make it all go away but can’t. 30 years in the martial arts teaching that “There is always a way out”. There is always a technique (A fix) to any situation. Yet, I can’t find one for this either. So, on behalf of the entire Red Dragon family let me tell you what your legacy has been for us.

As I stand in line with the hundreds of your friends who came to say good bye and pay respects to your loved ones I notice so many karate students, present and former as well as parents, some we haven’t seen in years. They were all compelled to come pay respects and say good bye to a man who had a profound and positive effect on their life. Folks would tell a Dennis story recalling how you always had an ice coffee when you came to the school or how good with the kids you were. And the fact that you would remodel anything given the chance. There were lines of jeeps in the parking lot. They too were all there to say good bye to a man who brought a light to everything he did. As I turned the corner in the room I saw your family, grieving but strong. Mustering the strength to greet and thank everyone who came in. To see that kind of strength was heartbreaking and impressive at the same time…….

So, what I have l learned from this is that one man really can make the world a better place. You made Red Dragon a better place, your smile and demeanor were a comforting factor to all students young and old. Many bonds and friendships were forged because of you. Having you at the front of the class was an honor and a privilege to me and to Red Dragon. Someone once said, “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery”. Well the countless number of students who learned from you, trained with you and soaked up that spirit has spread to our community and others. So, a little bit of Dennis Lynch walks this earth with all of us every day. And that makes Norton and the world a better place.
So my friend as we make our final “Bow”, You really have made this world a better place and will be sorely missed. Good bye to a good martial artist, a good man and a good friend. Rest in Peace.

Bob Downey
I invite folks to sign and comment below on any Dennis story they would like.
