We are sad to learn of the passing of Grandmaster John Tompkins July 6, 2016.  GM Tompkins was 72 and first joined the ITF after his service with the U.S. Army and served as a aviation crew member for the Huey platform while in Vietnam.  GM Tompkins was known for his technical ability and could both verbally and in writing detail minute Taekwon-Do movements and ideas and his written color belt manual is still one of the best out there.
