RIP Renshi Jim Webb Sr.

Post by Akadeanna Hawk on Tue Jul 05, 2016 6:50 pm


Renshi Jim Webb Sr. was a wonderful Karate Instructor I studied under him for 5 years earning my blue belt which was 4 belts in at his Dojo. He taught me many things including the one thing he hated to teach and that was weapons.

I had to stop training with them due to money problems, but then I learned later that not too long after I quit they closed down for the same reason.

Then about 3 years ago I was searching online trying to find out if Renshi Jim Webb Sr. still taught martial arts as I was interested in picking up my lessons again and I found a video dedicated to him.

The Video was called Jim Webb 40 years in the making (video in next post). I watched it and it brought back so many memories from studying with them; and I commented that it brought back so many memories.

His daughter Becky and I spoke through youtube and I found out that he had died in 2010 and I nearly started crying; sure I didn't know him outside of the Dojo, but he was still a great man and teacher and it hurt.

Kung Fu Fighting by: Carl Douglas

Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah

[Chorus:]
Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact, it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up
They were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chinese art
And everybody knew their part
From a fainting, to a slip
And a kickin' from the hip
Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billie Chin and little Sammy Chong
He said, here comes the big boss, let's get it on
We took the bow and made a stand
Started swaying with the hand
A sudden motion made me skip
Now we're into a brand new trip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning
But they did it with expert timing

Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh, ha
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh, ha
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh-ha
Keep on, keep on, keep on
Sure enough
Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning
Make sure you have expert timing
Kung Fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning...

I’m Free:

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free;
I’m following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that place at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow;
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored so much;
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s
Touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share it with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.
