I was born and raised in France, have been living in the USA since 1992, after several years traveling around the world. I started practicing Martial Arts in 1969 I believe. After an interruptions during my college years, I came back seriously in 1986 when I was in Korea. Since then, I have not stopped.
Presently, I hold the ranks of 4th degree Black Belt in Yoshukai Karate, 2nd Degree in Nihon Ju Jitsu and 1st Degree in Muso Jikiden Eishin Ryu Iai Jutsu. I have also been practicing and teaching Tai Chi and Kendo for several years, and trained in Soto Zen for 7 years. More could be said about myself, but this being mostly about Martial Arts and Zen, it would not add much to these subjects.
