Isaiah Jordan – Seiji Sakata Inspired * #StayStrongSeiji *

I am sure I speaks for everyone in the flatland community, when I say we were all sad to hear the news of Seji Saketa being diagnosed with Liver Cancer. We all hope he pulls through and continues to fight. Saty Strong Seiji! Isaiah Jordan put together this nice edit inspired by Seiji, and had these words to say:

I never got to meet or talk to him directly, but I remember asking if it was cool if i could use #SeijiStyle hashtag on some clips i was going to drop (that never got finished) a couple years ago. He replied with a thumbs up so I started and think I got about 3 clips released because I got hurt trying his hang-5 barflip. I compiled the clips I did have in honor of Seiji……#StayStrongSeiji #SeijiStyle”
