It is said with a very heavy heart and much sadness that on this Christmas Day, December 25, 2013, our friend, family, and Instructor has passed away.
Sifu Stanley “Sonny” Michaels started teaching at South Bay Jiu Jitsu only a few years ago yet he quickly became a very special and important part of our South Bay Jiu Jitsu Family. To say he will be missed by all is for certain, although, these words can’t seem to express how deep this loss is truly felt in all our hearts.
Sonny was very passionate about making a difference in the lives of his students and it continues to show in each and every student he’s ever taught. He often took time out of his days and nights to work individually with many of our students. We will continue to see Sonny each and every day in each of his students and will be reminded of him and all he stood for.
Our thoughts and prayers are with his Family, his wife Adriana, and his daughter Sofia.
Bob Bass, Kelly, Zol, and The South Bay Jiu Jitsu Family
