My first teacher was Chuck Norris at Sherman Oaks Karate Studio. He taught TSD, TKD and Yudo. I had some of the great first generation Black Belts under him teaching me. Names like, Ichikawa, Johnson, Garcia, Gross, Pohnel, Zacharatos, Rodriguez, Natividad, etc. I left shortly after he did (to create UFAF, then Chun Kuk Do, and then make movies and tv full time) though, as I did not want to leave Tang Soo Do. After him I found my current Grand Master, Young Ik Han (9th Dan under Hwang Kee (MDK TSD/SBD) and 9th Dan Kukkiwon). I am currently 5th (4th Dan Tang Soo Do/Soo Bahk Do Certified under Grand Master Ivanhoe Kim) Dan under him in Moo Duk Kwan Tang Soo Do/Soo Bahk Do, and Moo Duk Kwan Tae Kwon Do (3rd Dan Kukkiwon Certified).
