Broken Wand - Mahka Tendo

Message from Dale Salwak

It is with much sadness that I report the passing of Japan's Mahka Tendo from cancer early on the morning of May 26th at the age of 49.

Mahka was known and respected and loved by the magical community all over the world. For many months he fought bravely and strongly, his family at his side.

Many magicians, upon learning of his illness, continued to send him DVDs and e-mailed messages of encouragement. These meant a lot to him. He died knowing that others cared.
