The Ultimate Self Defense
"My involvement in the Martial Arts has
spanned more than fifty-five years. During that time I have been
privileged to train with and learn from many highly skilled Martial
Beginning in 1954, I joined a Judo class taught by Art Broadbent
(Sandan) and ten months later, enlisted in the United States Coast
Guard. My training continued in Boxing and Judo. After being Honorably
Discharged, I trained under Charles Gruzanski (Shodan) in Judo and
Karate and was promoted to Rokyu in Kyokushinkai Style of Karate.
It was there that I met John Keehan. We became fast friends and studied
and trained together. Seeking a deeper understanding of the Discipline
and determined to acquire more advanced training, in 1962 we traveled
to Arizona to study with Master Robert Trias.
He was a 7th Degree Black Belt at that time and proficient in
Shorei-Goju, Kempo, and Shotokan Karate. The training was intense,
and after six months we learned several formal katas, Taezu Naru Waza
techniques (speed forms), knife and club defense, open hand fighting
and defenses against multiple attackers.
Then, following this mind-opening experience, it was back to Chicago
where I continued my quest for Black Belt, which I earned in 1963. It
was during this time that I began teaching, continued my own education
in the Arts and received the rank of Rokyudan in 1970. It has taken
years to perfect the finer points of heavy breaking, the use of Asian
weapons, and perform the formal katas, train other Black Belts and
hold the rank of Judan.
The following form, Monkey Dance #1, is considered one of the ultimate
self-defense forms in the Martial Arts. It is specifically intended
for high ranking and skilled practitioners and must be practiced
hundreds of times to be executed with fluidity, strength, and precision."
