I have studied martial arts since I was a kid. I started Shotokan Karate when I was 16 and got my Black Belt when I was 18. It is still the highest rank I hold after 30 years of Martial Arts. Besides swordfighting and Karate, I have seriously trained in Muy Thai Kickboxing, Cadena de Mano Arnis, and Jujitsu. like many others I have had the opportunity to train for short times in a variety of other arts and weapons including bowie knife and baton. There has never been a time when I wasn’t training and teaching some type of martial combat.
