In 1984, I read one of the first books I’ve ever read outside of anything required for school. If I remember correctly, it was entitled “The Art of Kempo Karate.” I was 14 years old at the time, and had been training in a Karate club for a few years now. I was seeking a little extra knowledge about the martial arts. This was not for the purpose of impressing the head instructor Sensei Bev Dick. I had a thirst for all the information I could possibly get about the martial arts, and self defense in general.
This pursuit of additional martial knowledge led me down several paths even at a young age.
This post is my first, and it’s more of a practice piece as I learn how to build this site better. Thank you.
