Just a quick note of condolences for the Alliance Team in Atlanta for the loss of Jim McPherson, passed away just shy of his 62 birthday after a yearlong battle with colon cancer, surrounded and comforted by loved ones.
It's always been a pleasure in my travels to encounter the McPhersons and the were the epitomes of class acts, greatsportmen and ambassadors for our art of Jiu Jitsu. Always a handshake, a how are you doing and and a great conversation on Jiu Jitsu and his son Ian, who you could tell he was immensely proud of. Rest in Peace Mr. Jim, you will be missed.
