The Blind Man's Whips
I was 10 years old when I started my first martial arts class. After that I was hooked. When I was 15, by luck or chance I was away from my home for three months. In my new surroundings I met an old man, who intrigued me. I would sit for hours watching and learning how to make whips.
Like most of us into whips, you never forget your first one. My first one left a lasting impression on me...I still have the scar atop my head as a reminder. If I wasn’t in one of my martial arts classes, I could be found making a whip, but you would always find one at my side.
A few months before my eighteenth birthday I joined the US Army. For three and a half years my love for whips and martial arts was put to the back burner, while other things of importance occupied my time.
By the age of 25, I was completely in the dark.
After 28 years and studying five systems of martial arts, I have learned a lot. Some of the best things that I have learned were from a whip.
