Popovitch's Family Tragedy

"A tree is known by its fruit; a man by his deeds.  A good deed is never lost;
he who sows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gather love."


Pablo with his parents
It seems the world is going to hell in a hand basket over the past couple of weeks.  I am sure you have heard of the devastating mudslides in Brazil leaving thousands homeless, and killing at last count around 420 people!  Well the grappling world took a serious KO blow the other day when Pablo Popovitch announced that his parents house had been hit by the mudslides putting his father in critical condition and unfortunately taking his mother way too soon in life!  I cannot even begin to imagine the pain and suffering he and his family are going through right now, and all I can offer is my sincerest condolences and prayers that the Popovitch family finds peace in this terrible tragedy.

Sadly this is not the worst of the news... Pablo's father is in critical condition without health insurance.  Really without anything.  The retirement house his father built is completely demolished!  They had no warning so everything was lost!

Here is the footage Pablo shot earlier this week:



As you can see Pablo is looking for donations to help out.  Unfortunately I am flat ass broke and cannot help much, but at the very least I wanted to spread word and help raise awareness to the situation.

I have had a few people email me and ask if the Popovitch seminar is still happening here in Seattle, WA. and the simple answer is I do not know.  I am not promoting the seminar so I am not sure.

Please click here to read the whole story and to offer any help to Pablo!

Pablo, I hope you find peace with the passing of your mother.  Know in your heart she is somewhere far more beautiful than earth, and you will see her again!

Peace,
Jake
