The Passing of My First Judo Instructor

Today I have received the very sad news that Bob Todd, Vice President Judo Victoria Incorporated and 7 Dan, passed away.

My prayers and sympathies go out to his wife Betty and family.

He will be greatly miss by the greater judo community here in Victoria Australia and I am sure his passing will have influence much wider than that.

Bob was my First Judo instructor and one of my teachers in secondary school.

He was a great mentor and an excellent friend to have on your side.

I always felt as though he was always please to see me as he always greeted me with a smile, I always felt comfortable around him and never felt as if I was putting him out in any way whenever I had a question to ask him.

I will miss him greatly.

Richard
