The 10th Degree Black Belt (Jūdan)

Updated: June 20, 2014
This is one of my finest achievements as a martial artist. After 44 years of training with some of the greatest martial artists of  all  time — and with lots of blood and broken bones — I was promoted to Jūdan, the 10th dan black belt, in my parent system of American Open Style Karate under Grand Master Danny Wilson. 
Before the invention of safety punch and kicks and  pads the real  world of bare knuckle fighting is an awesome  way to know what  you know and disregard what doesn’t  work for you, with the  knowledge that everyone is different.
