From Ecptaiji – Youtube

Hi Mike. I enjoyed your Miao Dao teaching very much. Thanks for
sharing.
That was what I wrote on mike’s YouTube channel yesterday, not knowing
Mike has already passed on.
Though i have not met Mike, I was shocked abd saddened when was told by my
master this morning. Such a talent departed at such a young age!
I believe Mike has lived a lively and colourful life in the MA sphere and his
contributions in the MA world will continue to touch the hearts of many for a
long long time.

I feel I lost a good friend and teacher.  I never met Mike, I only watched his
seminars and messages posted on websites.  He was the best Kungfu practitioner
I’ve ever seen.  I knew how to unleash the power of traditional kung fu.
It’s a great loss to the world of traditional martial art.
Rest in peace.  Mike

I just wanted to say that , though i never got the chance to meet Mike, I appreciate his message that he has consistently demonstrated throughout all of his youtube videos.  I find them insipirational and plan to take some ideas from them , and incorporate into my Training in Chinese Martial Arts as well. It is sad to see a living treasure of knowledge like Mike pass on. So I must say that I am still pleased that he was able to touch my life in the way that he has.

Mikes Youtube Legacy

Here is a link to Mike’s Youtube account where you can find hours and hours of footage.  I know with his seminars in New Mexico, and here in Seattle, WA. he basically took all the footage I gave him and edited it down to the meat and potatoes so to speak.  Those of you around the world are lucky in that Mike believed in sharing every

thing.  He used to say: “Jake, why worry about anyone stealing something from video?  They were not their, they did not feel what was happening.  I want the world to see that the Chinese martial arts are still going strong, because honestly I am worried about the quality of the teachings being passed down.”

http://www.youtube.com/user/mikemartello Enjoy guys.  Lots, and lots of good stuff on those videos.  I do not know how things are handled on Youtube once someone passes, so you may want to burn them to hard drives just in case.

Peace,

Jake
