Loss of a legend -Dave Paaaina

Dave passed on his home turf in Hawaii on 01 Jun 18. A SEAL legend and in Martial Arts. I was fortunate to have him as a Third Phase BUD/S instructor (as long as I wasn't the demonstrator for the hand-hand classes!). RIP Pai.

Rest In Peace. I have read he had extensively studied Praying Mantis style. Very good at knife fighting/defense also.

Definitely my favorite BUD/S instructor, probably everyone's favorite for my class. He was a Martial Arts legend and I had heard about him before going to BUD/S. He was mentioned in this book published in 1978.
