That means I'm a student again, learning various martial arts from a variety of instructors in Austin, Texas. I'm available to teach youth self-defense workshops and "teach the teacher" seminars, and for speaking engagements. To inquire about workshops or speaking events, please send an e-mail to

TaoTexas@gmail.com.


I'm currently on a teaching sabbatical.
