Ed Parker instilled in me a deep dedication to the principles of liberty...that the martial arts came out of a history of resistance to tyranny; and that the knowledge and skills he bequeathed to me were entrusted with the understanding that they be used for the same purpose. I was never allowed to think of what I had been entrusted with, as a game. Nor were those of us who studied under him allowed to think of it as a "sport" or some kind of social organization. It was a serious part of life. One dedicated to the preservation of individual freedom and the protection of those set upon by the bullies of the world.

Times change. Pespectives shift. I respect that. I will clean up my muddy foot prints and trundle off to commune with the other remaining dinosaurs. Thank you for your patience and your courtesy.
