He learned the art of the ancient warriors and became a recognized Master of the martial arts and taught many, many students throughout New Mexico, Maryland, and Delaware. His legacy lives on with his current students and with those students who will never forget the lessons taught by their Sensei.

He is survived by his sons and daughters; Jose R Enrique of Delaware, Maria Hodges of New Mexico, Juan M Enrique of Delaware, Angelina Enrique of South Dakota, Craig J Bates of Pennsylvania, Phyllis Gove of Florida, Charles Hammer of Maryland, and many grandchildren and great grandchildren.
