Jonathan Bluestein's page at Facebook. He was the sold inheritor of his style of martial arts and so much knowledge will now be lost.
I am utterly shocked and in tears upon hearing of the passing of my friend, Sifu James Cama.
I got to know sifu Cama a while back when I interviewed him for my
book. It was only a few weeks ago that we have last spoken. I cannot
claim to have known him well, but I do
want to say a few words of the man I knew.
James was a kind soul, with a
gentle heart and an lovely smile. He was never pretentious, and always
spoke from the depths of his heart. He loved his arts and his teachers
dearly, and his family even more.
He was an authentic old-schooler in
everything he did, and always stuck to his truth no matter what and
regardless of who said otherwise. I was always genuinely impressed with
him as a martial artist, and more so as a human being.
He left behind a
spouse, a daughter and a son, as well as a teacher (sifu Robert Lee) and
many students. He will be missed. May he rest in peace. I am thankful
for all that he has selflessly shared with me. It was only yesterday
that his first and last book was published, on his beloved art of Buddha
Hand Wing Chun, of which he was the sole inheritor in North America.
Please be kind and purchase the book, as the money will likely now be
used to support sifu Cama's family.
