In Memoriam – Sifu Ted Reynolds

August 12th, 2005

Sifu Ted Reynolds … a close friend and student of Mr. Deily’s, passed away in August 2005. Mr. Reynolds was an ‘Original’ Private Student who was taught out of Sifu Deily’s basement long before there was an official LMA. He was the 2nd person promoted to Black Belt at the Academy and served as Mr. Deily’s Personal Teaching Assistant for many years at the CCAC Kali / Filipino Martial Art Class. Ted was the Monday night Instructor as well as the Chief Instructor of LMA’s Youth Program. A Professional Bass Player / Musician, Ted returned to his hometown of Nashville in 2002. Mr. Reynolds will be truly missed by all those that came to know him!

In Memoriam – Sifu Bernice Giunta

January 12th, 2005

Sifu Bernice Giunta … in January 2005, LMA lost a dear family member to cancer – Sifu Bernice Giunta. Mrs. Giunta and her husband Tony have been friends and strong supporters of Mr. Deily for over 22 years. Bernice was the first person promoted to Black Belt at LMA, and is the highest ranking student of Sifu Deily. She taught the Tuesday night classes at LMA for years, as well as classes at Seton Hill College and the YWCA in Greensburg, PA. Bernice was also a leader at the Annual Women’s Self-Defense Workshop offered at the North Campus of CCAC in Pittsburgh. Tony and Bernice have taught their own classes in the only Official ‘Basement Branch’ of LMA since 1986, and are great examples of what the martial arts are supposed to be about. Bernice was 47 years old …our prayers continue to be with her family, especially her husband Tony.
