“Tales” Aboard the U.S.S. North Carolina!

Recently, I was invited by a gentleman named Larry Isaac to a special event called the “2nd Annual Tournament of Champions Banquet”. At that banquet, I had the opportunity to give a speech on the process of writing my book “Tales”, as well as sharing some general thoughts and philosophies on martial arts. There was also a banquet and award ceremony that night. The event took place on board a United States battleship called the U.S.S. North Carolina.

Here are some photos at the event:

Congratulations to all of the award winners that night. What an incredible honor and privilege that was for me to stand and share some general thoughts and philosophies.
