    Hello-Dennis Jones

    Post by Dennis jones on Sun Dec 07, 2008 8:17 pm

    Hi Everyone

    Just a bit about my background:

    In 1973 I started Kyokushinkai karate. Around 1977 I opened a karate club (2nd kyu Brown Belt). I received my Kyokushinkai Black Belt in 1980. Like a lot of martial artists during the seventies and eighties, I took lessons in Judo, Jujitsu, Aikido and Kung fu (Hard and soft) and had also boxed for a local ABA club.
    I started working as a bouncer around 1980 and have just recently retired from the door in 2006. Around 1981 I stopped practising karate per se but continued to trainI am a certified Wu Tai Chi teacher and a reality based martial artists (is that a style?). I have taught at Seni on two occasions (2007/08) and from 2003 to early 2008 wrote with Steve Rowe the Martial Arts Illustrated column Samurai on the Door.

    I am looking forward to some interesting conversations.

    Kind regards

    Dennis Jones

    Hi Den,

    Great to see you here.

    I think what makes Den's approach particularly interesting is his working knowledge of people in general. His frank observations are a strong piece of inspiration around a lot of my recent writing and coaching.
