Martial Arts Community Loses a Champion
Former National Forms Champion Stuart Quan, 43,
Dies of Unknown Causes
Fresno, CA -- According to a report by KFSN-TV, Fresno martial artist and Hollywood actor Stuart Quan died suddenly here on January 8 while returning home from a snowboarding trip to Sierra Summit. He was only 42.
Quan lost consciousness while riding in the back of a car. His friends tried to revive him as paramedics rushed to the scene, but he died.

I thought he was just an amazingly talented, funny and hard working individual who was so willing to step up and help others. No pretense. No drama. Simply a wonderful soul who will be greatly missed. My hearfelt condolences to Stuart"s family, friends and students.

1/10/2006 10:33:13 AM | Stuart was my Sensei and one of my best friends for more than 15 years. He touched the lives of thousands of people. Through his remarkable spirit and talent, he was able to see the best in us all and show us how to love and respect all things, and how to be the best person we could be. For all of us that had the blessing to train under Stuart, we will forever have a part of him in all of us to grow and share for the rest of our lives. Words can"t express how much Stuart meant to me and how much I"ll miss him.

1/10/2006 9:25:32 AM | Stuart was my teacher , mentor and friend. I am so blessed that my son started training with him just a few months ago and was able to test with him . Stuart had an amazing eye for people and what they needed . He would take us to places phyically and spitritually that we had no idea we were capable of. He never stopped pursuing new truths and he he will be missed beyond measure. I have used my training under Sensei stuart as a foundation for my life. Till we meet on the other side Sensei...

You fulfilled his void and needs with confidence, wisdom and respect when he was having his hard time and from this he will always have a piece of you in his heart for everything that he has learned from you in karate. It was a honor knowing you and we were the ones truly blessed to have you in our lives. Your family,Debbie and the children are in our prayers.

Your journey in the martial arts world was surely cut to short. Times like these truely remind me how special it is to have the chance to continue to train in the martial arts. Much love and respect.

Thanks for sharing so many golden moments of competing, training, and doing demonstrations during our old school West Coast Demo Team days. Stuart your spirit will be with us forever. At a time like this Stuart would probably tells us all to stay strong and united as a family.

1/10/2006 8:21:05 AM | I have had the privilege in meeting Stuart and at first meeting you already knew this man was special, a humble man who listen to you sincerely with interest in what you had to say. I have to say that I am honored to have met him and he is and always will be a hard act to follow. It is obvious that the world needs guardian angels and Stuart Quan is now one of them. I am thankful to have met a man like him... Rest in peace

David Tadman

1/10/2006 8:14:51 AM | Stuart Quan was one of the pioneers of open and musical forms competition responsible for what is known as extreme martial arts today. He was a showman with awesome martial arts skills, but more importantly a class act credit to our activity. A tournament did not have the same flavor if Stuart, his sister Kathy and "Poppa" Quan were not in attendance. My condolences to his family.

Dev Anand

1/10/2006 2:19:04 AM | Although I was just getting to know Stuart I was impressed with his positive energy. Always encouraging the youth around him evidenced at his tournament held only last month at Hoover High in Fresno. He was always aware respectful and humble giving the sum of his credit to his father. His ever present loving wife was credited with support and the primary driving force behind all his efforts which at the time included the tournament previously mentioned. Briefly knew of Stuart at the Rising Sun Dojo here in Fresno but never got to know him well even then. There were many times I had seen his performances in various movies and other mediums. Never was there a time I can remember he was without a smile. It gives me great sorrow to not have had the chance to get to know him better. On the occasion that I did get to speak with the Master I can say he was always ALWAYS walking in the light of humility. Never did he ever over speak his abilities (he didn"t have to). His abilities spoke for themselves. I will miss him and I will surely miss the opportunity to have gotten to know him even more.

Sensei Bruce Lee McGlynn

1/10/2006 2:10:05 AM | I still remember meeting you at your dojo 10 yrs ago for karate lessons.You were very nice to me.I am very shocked to learn that you"ve passed away at the young age of 42.My sincere condolences to your family.You will always be remebered as a great person and martial artist.Good bye Sensei Quan

Sensei Bryant Caminero

1/10/2006 12:10:22 AM | I only knew Stuart for a brief time. Not being a Martial Artist, I can only relate to the spirit of the man. His sense of humor and his sense of wonder were wonderful to see and experience. I wish I had knew him better and much, much longer. Rest well, my friend. May God bless you and keep you. You will be remembered, and missed.

Ronald Strong

1/10/2006 12:09:13 AM | Stuart, As I sit here in tears after just finding out about your early departure, I"m struggling to find just the right words to say. But then I can hear your voice in my head just say, "just go for it, there are no mistakes... just write whatever comes into your head. Go!" And then I"d start, but hesitate, and you"d just shoot me a look and say, "And, GO!" God Stu...i"m gonna miss running scenes with you and going over our standup comedy shit. And sitting in Ginza and just catching up with each other. From the day I met you in Brad"s acting class, you touched me. Your honesty, your kind heart. Your toughness. But most of all your vulnerability. I"m not sure how much of that you showed to other people, but that"s the quality I admired about you most. You were secure enough to be vulnerable. I learned a lot from you, brother, and I will always keep you in my heart. And when I get up there, I"m going to kick your ass! I miss you and love you sooo much.

Ken Huber

1/9/2006 11:58:02 PM | From sweat lodges to laughter we shared, I"m a better person for having known you. I’m sure the path you’re on now is brighter now that you"ve arrived.

1/9/2006 11:01:55 PM | To the friends and family of Master Quan, although we are the same age, you were one of my mentors in the martial arts while growing up.

Msrcos Lopez

1/9/2006 8:57:05 PM | Your early passing is also a powerful lesson that death comes to us all regardless of how great our skill, how successful we are, how great a human being we were or how much we are loved by our friends, family and martial community and yet, even though you are gone, so much of you lives on in each of us whose lives you touched. The quality of your light and love will never die. Good Journey!

Peter Hill

1/9/2006 8:49:20 PM | Although I only had the honor to meet you once in 1988 at the Battle of Atlanta, you were one of my mentors of martial arts. You were so kind to me and I will never forget that day. We have suffered a great loss to our community. My prayers go out to all of his family, friends, and students.

Eric Myers

1/9/2006 8:48:11 PM |  I was saddend at the news of his passing. My thoughts go out to his family. One of the gaints of Sport Karate. I was a big fan of Stuart Quan when he was burning up the PKL tournament circuit, during an era when there really was only one true national sport karate circuit. probably best remembered back then for his flying kama routine to the theme from the 70"s TV show SWAT which many later emulated but noone equalled. I was delighted to spot his face in the movie comedy Dragnet among others and knew his success would continue on. He will be missed.

Melvin Roberts

1/9/2006 8:43:22 PM | I remember Stuart as a teenager doing kata and impressing us as judges. He will be sorely missed and his great deeds will live long after we are all passed. Rest in Peace Bro

1/9/2006 8:01:59 PM | Stuart was an inspiration to me as a competitor and as a person, he accomplished great things in his life. This world was a brighter, more exciting place because he was here. My prayers go out to his family and students.

Mike Fillmore

1/9/2006 7:59:34 PM | I met you in the early 80"s when I was just a child learning the arts. You gave me some wonderful advice on Kata and competition aspects that have blessed me with many wins over the years. I will pray for you and always remember your skills, determination and advice as I cherished it as much as a child as I still do today.

1/9/2006 7:44:41 PM |  If I’ve learned anything down through my martial art years, it’s that nothing beautiful in this world is really lost – Those we cherish will always live on in our hearts and memory. My sincere Condolences to the Stuart Quan family, students and friends.

Richard S. Bustillo

1/9/2006 7:38:37 PM | I don"t understand why God took you home so soon. Like Bruce Lee we are stunned, confused, and disappointed. However, I KNOW for certain GOD is ALWAYS right, so HIS reason will be known in time. Someone might even come to know Jesus Christ because of this situation. At any rate GOD"S WILL be done. May the Family be Blessed dispite the Circumstances. Being in Heaven with his Creator is a good place to be.

1/9/2006 4:50:05 PM | I admit --I was afraid to fight you Stuart. You were SO fast and so dynamic. Competing with you was an honor...but friend, you"ve gone too early! Strange that just last week I was thinking of you, wondering how to reach you. My sincere condolences to your loved ones –and, on behalf of your friends at West Coast Martial Arts and those of us in the Ultimate Black Belt Test who knew you, we will miss you.

Tom Callos

1/9/2006 4:25:37 PM | Each of us have had the priviledge of being able to study the martial arts sometime over the last 40 plus years. The martial arts is part of our lives, it is who we are. We have come to know great individuals, champions, pioneers and masters. Some we have known personally, some we know only by name and reputation. Nevertheless, we have come to appreciate these beautiful artforms that we cherish so dearly and those who became our inspiration. However, when one of our own leaves us, it is felt by the whole martial arts community. Stuart Quan was one of the bright and shinning lights of the tournament circuit. He was not only a top-rated competitor, but an excellent example of the spirit of the martial arts. I was priviledged to know Stuart personally throughout his tournament career and beyond. I was deeply sadden to hear of his passing. On behalf of the Martial Arts History Museum and the entire martial arts community, we send our prayers, thoughts and condolences to his wife and family. His legacy will continue to be an inspiration for many generations to come.

Michael Matsuda, Museum President

1/9/2006 4:07:57 PM | Stuart was my mentor, friend and someone that I looked up to for years.
My deepest condolences to his wife, kids and family.
