My Teacher

At the age of 23, while looking for a school to learn the art of karate, I was fortunate enough to walk into Bob Ozman's dojo on Van Nuys Blvd in Van Nuys Ca.  - Fate was on my side that day, as it turned out to be the beginning of a long journey in martial arts & also a life-long friendship with one of martial arts greatest masters. Below are some wonderful photos in which to remember Sensei Ozman.
