    Everything happens but memories stay and pay it forward.

    A Time for Everything

    3 There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time.

    2 There is a time to be born
    and a time to die.
    There is a time to plant
    and a time to pull up plants.
    3 There is a time to kill
    and a time to heal.
    There is a time to destroy
    and a time to build.
    4 There is a time to cry
    and a time to laugh.
    There is a time to be sad
    and a time to dance with joy.
    5 There is a time to throw weapons down
    and a time to pick them up.
    There is a time to hug someone
    and a time to stop holding so tightly.
    6 There is a time to look for something
    and a time to consider it lost.
    There is a time to keep things
    and a time to throw things away.
    7 There is a time to tear cloth
    and a time to sew it.
    There is a time to be silent
    and a time to speak.
    8 There is a time to love
    and a time to hate.
    There is a time for war
    and a time for peace.


    Enjoy the present moment while it lasts ...
    ... because memories lasts forever.

    That really is too bad, growing up watching his movies is one of the reasons I ended up involved in Martial Arts.

    Anyway for you to verify that for us Master Fahy?

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Han_Bong-soo On July 4, 1969, Han Bong Soo was giving a demonstration of hapkido at a park in Pacific Palisades, California. In the audience was Tom Laughlin. After a spectacular demonstration, Laughlin approached Han about being involved in a movie project called Billy Jack. Han gained critical acclaim for staging and performing some of the most realistic martial arts fight sequences in a film. Before Billy Jack, movies contained at most brief references to martial arts, with fights portrayed by actors who had little training. With Billy Jack, Han introduced authentic hapkido techniques to Western audiences.[3] In its sequel, The Trial of Billy Jack, he received a co-starring part where he spoke about and demonstrated the art, mentioning the art by name for the first time. Watch this clip closely and you can see the head and face of GM Han doing the techniques in the movie! Check out the photo and you can see that they place Tom Laughlin's face on GM Han's body!

    The martial art is real, it's just that the kicking techniques were done by GM Han, not Tom Laughlin. I still liked the movies anyway! I'm getting ready to watch the complete set of them tonight. They used to call me Sgt. Billy Jack when I was in the service. Master Fahy
