On behalf of the Bushido Karate Association, I wish to express our thoughts for Janet, Adam and Jill Muenchrath and to Lyle’s extended karate family in the South Calgay club, as well as those in the wider karate community in Alberta who benefitted from Sensei Lyle’s teachings.

I will remember him as a quiet man but the sort of strong pillar upon which you can build a club. He was a good friend to my close friends Heather and Darren, and for that I am truly grateful. The iron Wado gates he welded for the Fidyks and which they proudly hang at their home will remain a reminder of his talents off the floor and loyalty to those who trained with him on the floor.
