Founder/Master Instructor: Arthur Cohen - 9th Dan

I would like to say a little something about Arthur Cohen, my instructor, mentor and friend. Meeting Mr. Cohen was a turning point in my life.  He instilled many valuable lessons in my personal life and martial arts career, many that I have passed on to my own students.  We spent countless hours together on and off the deck, and would talk about everything and anything. Through him, I have met hundreds of other martial artists.  He encouraged me to teach and helped in developing the many seminars I have been fortunate to share with others. Although he never wanted us to use the title, I know, I will never meet another person like “Master” Arthur Cohen.
May he now rest in peace

In Memory of Master Arthur Cohen

I wanted to once again thank Master Arthur Cohen's friends, colleges and students for the recognition they have bestowed on him. He was a major influence on them and the martial arts. Above is a reprinted of this acknowledgement.
