Who am I? I am one who has kicked around on this earth for over half a century. Much history has been experienced and witnessed. I am fookin old and have been at this for a very long time.
What have I done? I started training in 1982. I've taught traditional, ol' school martial arts, built my own dojo, hung out at Upaya Zen Center (Roshi wrote a letters of recommendations for my 500 Rising certification) and I have traveled the country training with some amazing and knowledgeable people
What am I doing now? I am exploring some unfamiliar waters at the moment. The quest for understanding is a constant pursuit. I am in the middle of one of those pursuits right now.
Feel free to send inquires if you wish. However, if your inquiry is about classes or workshops, none are planned at this time.
And, and as for responses - no guarantees ;)
