Over the past weekend, Kalman Csoka gave the last performance of his NASKA career at the 2011 Diamond Nationals. He did his double sword form blindfolded!! He nearly got straight 10’s with only one 9.99. I’ve enjoyed competing against Kalman over the past few years. He has truly innovated and pushed the limits of our sport and has pushed me. As a friend, teammate and competitor I am going to truly miss him. A lot of people don’t remember but Kalman suffered a knee injury a couple of years before I broke my knee.  He gave me hope, encouragement and motivation.  I have tremendous respect for Kalman and he is a great friend!
