Michael Crampton – Shadow Of Leaves
Greetings and welcome to all martial arts practitioners, sword fanatics and sentient beings. We have some good news and some somewhat sad news to report regarding the Shadow Of Leaves website. Michael Crampton, who was the genius and resident expert behind the Shadow Of Leaves website has retired. From the conversations we had it sounds like Michael wanted to spend more time with his family and friends, going hunting, camping and fishing, and living out the rest of his lifetime in the tradition of the warrior that he has always practiced and exemplified. I’ve recently learned a lot about Mike’s character and contributions to the martial arts community and know that there is nothing but great admiration and respect for his work. He is truly a remarkable fellow and I know he will be greatly missed.
Carrying On The Tradition Of Shadow Of Leaves:
Mike has been gracious enough to let us carry on with Shadow Of Leaves and has sent me the contents of his website so we could reproduce and historically preserve a part of Mr. Cramptons life’s work, passion and wisdom forever. Once this task is complete our mission is to continue in Michaels footsteps by adding the same exceptional articles, quality resources and unique content that made this site so great to begin with. Let me say friends, these are big shoes to fill. I am inspired by this mans spirit, knowledge and commitment to the martial arts community and the respect he has earned throughout the world is humbling to say the least. Thanks again Mike for everything.
Note: I’m trying to persuade Mr. Crampton to be a special guest writer for the site from time to time so please leave a comment and show your support! Kevin
