        Always interested in the martial arts and after being diagnosed with diabetes. In 2002 he began searching for the right instructor and school. While sitting in and observing some classes he knew that the Authentic Shaolin Kung Fu school was the right place for him. His doctors advised him that it was a big factor in the control of his condition. " Training has given me a deeper spiritual understanding of myself and has afforded me inner peace. Now retired, I can handle the next phase of my journey, and what it has in store for me.

I thank Shifu Gregg Zilb and Shifu Lloyd Coleman, my instructors and brothers in arms. To all my brothers and sisters stay loyal, stay dedicated and train hard, P'ian.
