About meI am an author and acknowledged master speaker and educator, a teacher of ancient wisdom made practical for contemporary global society. I am a speaker who entertains and educates audiences and groups by presenting the notions of what the ancient masters meant.

An authority on negotiation, management, motivation training, personal development, and spiritual ascension technique, I provide functional solutions that empower audiences to turn all challenges: real and imaginary, emanating from the worlds of business, military, and personal endeavor into viable opportunity by demonstrating definitive working techniques that bring about advantageous results. My books have sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide and have been translated into many languages, including French, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, and Chinese.

Acknowledged as Shodai Soke, a true founding father of American Karate, and one of the world's most honored martial arts masters and teachers, I was elected to the title and rank of Hanshi, 10th Dan, the most prestigious accomplishment in the martial arts world, by international peer associations in 1991. I have been awarded the prestigious Platinum Lifetime Achievement Cup, denoting 50 years of service to the arts, and the unprecedented International Martial Arts Assn. award as Distinguished Grandmaster and Educator.
