Master Fred Lewis
(August 7th, 1957 – April 3rd, 2015)
Master Lewis was a 5th Degree Black Belt Master Instructor at Essential Martial Arts where he had been training every week since it opened in 1996. He was one of EMA’s original students and most senior student and instructor. He was the manager of EMA Oak Ridge where he had taught since that school opened.
One of Master Lewis’ favorite sayings when he was teaching martial arts to the children at EMA was, “We are going to work hard and then we are going to play hard.”
“Master Lewis was a great contributor to EMA and a passionate instructor who loved teaching martial arts. He was my friend and a person I knew I could count on. I will always miss him.”
