I started out in TaeKwonDo in 1970 for about a year- the only place to study was in Norristown- I lived in Warminster. I then began several years training with Mr. Charlie Partridge in Sosuishiro JiuJutsu in Hatboro- earned a green belt before he had to stop teaching- heart trouble. Studied Shotokan in Southampton. Then in 1972 went to Cliff Jewel's American Karate Sudio in Feasterville (Knights and Street) and got a job managing and teaching in his studio. Had a very bad motorcycle accident in 1973 and wasn't able to take up the martial atrts again until 1996. Began studying under Dennis Tosten at Amerikick in Willow Grove. I earned my first dan in 2000, and have continued on advancing earning my 4th dan in 2013. I currently live in Souderton.
