I am a martial artist. I started at age six. You could say that I spent the first 20 years of my life exploring three different styles of martial arts, and the next 30 (plus) years pursuing a more efficient way of self-defense.
I have spent this time adhering to the philosophy of Bruce Lee. No wonder: my teacher was one of the original Bruce Lee students.
I started teaching martial arts in 1982, and began teaching high school in 1988. I taught in Oregon high schools for twelve years. In 2000, I became a full-time martial arts author.
