Professor Robert J. Nohelty 1953-2017
Hachidan (8th degree)
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that I announce the sudden passing of Professor Robert (Bob) Nohelty on September 11, 2017. Bob was a talented martial artist and a man of integrity but more than that, he was my best friend for the better part of my life. Bob began studying the martial arts in 1973 in Burlington Massachusetts, later to become the owner and head instructor of that same school. His love of the martial arts and teaching has touched the lives of countless students of the arts around the world. Bob received his 8 degree and professor title in 2002 from Grand Master S. George Pesare. Bob was a father, a grandfather, a teacher, a good friend and he will be missed each and every day.
