Let's see, started with Tae Kwon Do in LB, CA in the 70's then switched to this little known school called the Philipino Kali/ Chinese Kickboxing Academy in Harbor City, CA. I had fallen under the able teachings of Danny Inosanto and Richard Bustillo.
Studied Kali, Eschrima/Arnis, JKD, Wing Chun and kickboxing. Did that thru the mid-80's then kinda stopped hitting the studio. Life and work caught up. A couple years ago started up again here in WA with a student of my Guro's student. I have been doing Kali, Arnis, Silat and a touch of JKD still. Don't bang anymore but I've got 3 good minutes to finish you then I run. lol
Richard will be coming up here to do a seminar for us in August. If any of you are interested, hit me up.
....Oh, belts. Humm. Hours matter, belts may not. Knowing is not enough, you have to do.
