About Me

Well, martial arts has pretty much been my whole life. My family starts some sort of matial arts (and swimming) right around 3 years old. In my case, it was no acception. I started Tae Kwon Do and Ishinryu with 2 different teachers when i was 4 years old. I adapted and absorbed it very easily. I had my first black belt by the age of 8, but if was not enough. I felt like I wasnt happy or content with what I had learned. I just didn't feel like the applications and techinques were feasible or applicable. I started with MWK in 1982. From the time I walked in and saw the techinques being done by some of the other students, I realized there was a whole other world I had not been exposed too. I immediatley caught on and adatpted to the theories and concepts of kenpo. I know it's weird to say, but it all became "second nature" to me. I received my first black belt in 1991. By 1995, I had progressed to black 2. by 1999, I had moved to 3rd black. The school had closed in 2003, and it was like the end of a family. Recently I have connected with my old instuctor Mike, and it's back to action. I am very excited to be a lifetime member now with the IKKA, and am looking forward to talking with other members about thier experiences, and to share mine.
