My Life, my art, my love. When I was a young boy I realized the
Martial Arts were in my blood. I was never the best, but I never stopped training
and studying. As a child I trained with my older brother who was then a champion
in his Judo division. In 1973 I joined my brothers judo club. Throughout 1974
- 1975 we were members of the Ontario Judo Black Belt Association. I felt there
was something still missing, so I began studying Tae Kwon Do and Karate during
the mid 70's to 1980. This provided a greater foundation which I could expand
upon. I joined the Armed Forces in 1980 in hopes to find a greater source of
Martial Arts. To my dismay the military martial arts were only basics. This
became an inspiration for me. It was like a stroke of enlightenment. I realized
that I knew what I wanted to do all along and was just looking for someone
or place where I could fit in. I stopped looking in vein and began creating.
I began teaching my own style at the military base and was soon noticed for
my expertise. Our Battalion formed a temporary Hand to Hand Combat team to
perform at the Pacific National Exhibition in 1981. This was a spectacular
event in which we demonstrated close quarter combat, sentry take downs repelling
from the rafters as well as bayonet and firearms. The military also provided
a great means of travel. Where ever we went I always made the opportunity to
train in diverse martial arts from Base to Base. It was also at this time I
began my studies of Ninjutsu.
I carried on teaching my own style in 1983 after my release and opened the
Hombu Dojo at 91 Water St. (s) Cambridge, Ontario, Canada in 1984.
I have never stopped learning, studying and developing. Even though I teach
Seicho Jutsu, I continued studying Ninjutsu with many of the great Masters
throughout the 1980's and 90's. I have had the honor to train with Shihan Stephen
Hayes and received Warriors Quest Level I and II 85 - 86. I also attended classes
with Daron Navon from Israel during his stay in Canada 87 - 88 and attended
the Tai Kai 1989 with Grandmaster Hatsumi. During the 1990's I was introduced
to Grandmaster Dr. Dan McEaddy where I began my studies of Angelic Ninjutsu
which stems from the Koga systems of Grandmaster Ronald Duncan. In 1994 I fulfilled
the requirements for 9th degree Black belt and was promoted by Grandmaster
My belief, is to continue growing learning and developing. Every
year I see things a bit differently. In the beginning it was mostly physical,
then the knowledge spread to the mental philosophical aspects, and at last
I emerged myself in the spiritual understanding of life.
The Martial Arts provides a path, it has become a vehicle that has taken me
through various realms of life.
