"I started Kuk Sool under Master Harmon in early 1993 at the age of 11. At the time I had four great mentors who I admired and looked up to greatly. In my mind, Master Barry Harmon and Choon Ok Harmon were completely amazing! I couldn't believe that Masters of such caliber actively taught regular classes. Their demos were incredible and I felt privileged to be a part of their school. Mike Nebgen (at the time Dahn Bo Nim) was another inspiration. I remember him conducting my first introductory lesson. After that, I knew this was the place I wanted to be. As I started coming through the ranks, I began to assist with classes. I would hold targets, be an extra partner, or anything that would get me more involved with the school. Isidoro Canales, better known to everyone as Izzy, helped me a tremendous amount to develop my teaching skills. He really took me under his wing and showed me the ropes. He helped me to develop the foundation for much of my teaching ability in the early years. I owe a great deal of who I am and what I have achieved to Master Barry and Choon Ok Harmon, Mike Nebgen, and Izzy Canales. Thank you all very much!"
