Overview

This is a memoir of a martial arts champion, a man who at various times during the '70s, '80 and '90s was THE competitor to beat in point karate competition. At least twice he was the top-ranked fighter in the United States during a rough and tumble period of competition that at times was all about blood letting and knockouts.

Dan takes the reader from his very first lesson at 14 years of age all the way to his 50s when he won a national title in the seniors division. Along this journey we see a man, a self-described martial arts fanatic who even lived in a karate school for a couple of years, progress to be a martial arts competition genius, who was admired by as many competitors and fans as those who despised him. But no matter what side you were on, you could not ignore his explosive skill and his ability to bring a tournament crowd to their collect feet.

This is the story of a man who over the years reached the top step in the subculture of martial arts point competition and in so doing became humble. While taking the reader on his extraordinary climb to the top, he never lets us forget that point competition was a game, a violent one, but nonetheless a game.

This is an incredible story that every martial artist should read.
