that time Mike has been training with Guro Dan and is currently
an Senior Associate Instructor in Jun Fan Gung Fu / Jeet Kune Do
the Filipino martial arts of Kali, Eskrima and Arnis, as well as
Maphilindo Silat. For almost 14 years Mike has averaged at least
50 hours a year training with Guro Dan at the Inosanto Academy
at seminars around the country. Guro Dan's influence as an instructor,
student and scholar has led Mike to train with a number of other
instructors (Punong Guro Edgar Sulite, Sifu Burton Richardson,
Machado Brothers, Ajarn Chai Sirisute, etc.) to learn and experience
a wide variety of martial disciplines.
to continue training, teaching and learning as long as
he possibly can and to influence as many martial artists along
way as he can. Planning for his eventual residence in a retirement
community, Mike has already developed two systems oriented towards
senior citizens: Kane Fu and Tai Chi Feely.
