Seigokan USA recently lost a dedicated teacher and brother, Frank Hinckley. On June 3, Frank's friends and extended family gathered to share stories and memories of a loving father and loyal friend. To those of us in Seigokan, Frank was also a powerful force, a creative martial artist, and for me, an immovable object. We'll miss him. Dave K.
