He was my instructor. No more to be said. He had a huge impact on my life that continues today. I learned recently of his passing. I only regret that I didn't keep in touch over the years. I'm fortunate to be able to continue to train after all these years. I continue to strive to be as good as he was. Good hunting Sir.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Mr. Allman's family. This man was humble when he was one of the best in the world. Not just martial arts but a real good human being. I elk hunted in Montana with Mr. Allman and Mr. Bailey. Both these gentleman have brought to this earth great things. Determination, pride and leadership we need more than ever now. Rest in peace Mr. Allman.

Dear Alesha,
I just ran in to your new bus driver for the year and asked him if you were riding the bus as I haven't seen you when passing Big Paul Circle. He told me about your Dad. The news upset me greatly. I want you to know how sorry I am for you and your family and I will say my prayers for your Dad and all the Allman family. Tell your mom I am thinking of her too. God Bless.

Mr. Allman was my instructor and inspired the strength in me to beat my cancer battle. He couldn't know the impact he had on his many students.... He was a good man. Peace to his wife, children & family
