I started www.fightingartsasia.com in 2010 and it has since become the single largest martial arts directory in the world. It gets an average of between 1,500 and 3,000 visitors per week. It is purely non-commercial, just a hobby.
I've been most fortunate to have traveled extensively around the world since 1963, including years in North America, Europe, (just a couple of months in) South America, and most recently some 20+ years in Asia. Everywhere I travel I visit and train with martial arts clubs. About 15 years ago I started publishing with Taekwondo Times magazine, and after moving to China some 10 years ago I started publishing in Kung Fu Tai Chi magazine.
During the summer of 2018 I visited Africa - specifically Ethiopia - for the first time and got to meet some of the masters of Taekwondo, Wushu Kung Fu and Karate teaching there. I'm very keen on getting to know more about African traditional martial arts as well - for I know that the river has no beginning and the deepest roots of human experience are to be found in Africa.
Though I've fought in more than 300 martial art tournaments between 1970 and 1984, I am no master - only a hobbyist as I always put academic pursuits before all else. None-the-less, I have at least learned to recognize real masters when I meet them and enjoy the company of all true martial artists.
Parts of my experiences traveling and training for example in South Korea, China and large parts of the Silk Roads are published in Taekwondo Times and Kung Fu Magazines. Some of those articles can be accessed via my websites:
Anyone looking at this site or my other sites will quickly realize I also have a number of other interests besides martial arts, including history, linguistics, archeology, psychology, evolutionary biology, neurophysiology and other things.
