In Guru's words: "I began my martial arts training at age 10 in Kenpo Karate. After training off and on for a year or so I began to get bored as class was the same every time. My dad introduced me to Boxing and his coach who coached him through golden gloves in his teen years, Mr. Bob McCalla. I Boxed from age 12 all the way through High School while dabbling in a bit of wrestling and Kickboxing. It wasn't until the age of 17 that I started training in Kenpo Karate seriously with Mr. Herb Tanton under Grandmaster Al Tracy. While working on achieving my Black Belt and eventually my 2nd Degree Black Belt in Kenpo, I also started training in JKD, Muay Thai, Kali-Silat, Eskrima, Maphilindo Silat, Shootfighting and more with Herb Tanton Jr. and Sifu Paul Bonner under Rick Faye and the Minnesota Kali Group/Guro Dan Inosanto, as well as Bart Vale in Shootfighting. Back in those days, we put everything we learned into the laboratory and sparred full-contact with only open ended Kempo gloves (no other protection). The rules were knockout or tapout! My formal Pencak Silat training began in June of 1996 with Guru Jeff Davidson and Pendekar William Sanders in Pukulan Cimande Pusaka. The rest is history!!! I've now been training in various forms of Pencak Silat with many teachers for about 16 years with the mindset of constant progression and evolution of my personal expression of Pencak Silat I call PCK Silat....."
