40th Anniversary

It was June 1971...

I entered the East Rutherford School of Karate & Ju Jutsu to take my first lesson in the martial arts. A professional photographer just happened to be there that day, and captured the first seconds of my 40 year journey. I can't help but think there must be something to fate...


I can still feel that moment.

Thank you to everyone who has helped me along the way.

I have heard my father had more natural talent than you did at a young age and it agitated you.
