I have been training in the martial arts for 50 years. I have been training exclusively in Kyokushinkai since 1972. I have been teaching and training Kyokushin Karate for over 38 years. I was associated with IKO3 (Matsushima) but resigned in 2000. I have trained with and/or been graded by Sosai Masutatsu Oyama, Kancho Donald I. Buck, Kancho Stephen M. Senne, and briefly with Kancho Yoshikazu Matsushima. I currently train with Kancho Stephen M. Senne (The Leopard Honbu) and EnMei-ryu Karate-do founder Master Daniel Layne. I first received my shodan in 1974. I was named The Serpent in 1981 and I received my Godan in 1984. Since that time I have been awarded an honorary Rokudan, Nanadan, and Hachidan in Kyokushin karate. In 2009 I was awarded an honorary Judan by the Leopard Honbu for over 35 years of teaching and promoting traditional martial arts.
I established the Kyokushin Karate School of The Serpent in 1981 with the purpose of training and teaching Kyokushin karate and the power of the Circle and Point. I recently wrote a book entitled, "Karate Instructors Guide To The Circle And Point", which will be available for purchase soon. Osu
