Yesterday, Ben van der Eng was laid to rest during an emotional but beautiful ceremony at Amsterdam’s Nieuwe Ooster cemetery with many speakers praising Ben’s accomplishments as a judo teacher, but also as a human being. Today, Ben’s judokas celebrated his life by attending a memorial judo lesson also visited by judo friends from all over the country. This is the way Ben would have wanted this. A good judoka always stands up after being thrown. His work will be continued.
