Martial artist since age 12 when I started in both Doshin Kan Karate and Yoshinkai Aikido. Student of Shian Toma and Ronnie Nix since 1990 and found my martial arts home to learn and eventyally propagate Okinawa Seidokan. Also trained under Shigimitsu Tamaie and Satoshi Yamauchi during my 8 years on the island of Okinawa. Now I travel the United States visiting Seidokan Dojos and encouraging cross dojo sharing, the sponsoring of seminar events, and to develop and raise quality standards in the Old Ways of Toide applications as taught in the Toma syllabus and our Kata.
My home is Florida where my wonderful friend and life partner resides and I will return to Florida shortly to continue our lives together. I thank the lord above for her understanding and tollerance of me that makes me a better man.
