It has been reported that Shawn Tompkins passed away in his sleep over the weekend. The 37 year old coach was well know in the MMA community and was without a doubt a Canadian MMA icon. Shawn was always a good friend to both Brass Knuckle Therapy and Drakkar Distribution and he was also the head trainer for BKT WolfPak members Sam Stout, Mark Hominick and Chris Horodecki. This is hard blow for his family, friends and the Canadian MMA community, he will be missed and remembered fondly.
