Halford Jones - Martial Arts Enthusiast, Author, Elder Statesman, and Adventurer - kali arnis eskrima escrima

Coming up this week we are excited to have Halford Jones, Martial Arts Enthusiast, Author, Elder Statesman, and Adventurer. A little bit about him, in his own words:

"I consider myself a 'martial arts enthusiast', an occasional practitioner, and a sometimes writer on martial arts. I have been interested in self-defense and related activities since childhood and I am now 77 years old. I have been privileged to have met a number of outstanding martial artists as well as many others along the way. I started in formal training in judo in 1959, then karate shortly afterwards, and eventually arnis and a few other arts, but I do not wear as a rule any uniforms, gis,etc..., unless required on some occasions. I prfer impromptu methods, backyard training sessions, and do not have any students nor want any if I can avoid it. I do not belong to any formal associations except by previous associations and I do keep a large contact with others usually at their behest via Facebook, e-mail and letter and once in a very rare occasion by telephone. I have traveled to a few places around the world: Philippines,Hawaii, Japan, Korea, HongKong, Cambodia, Burma, India, Egypt, Jordan, Jerusalem, Greece, Italy, Spain, Germany, England, Holland, France and would like to do more. I was born in Windsor,Vermont, and have lived mostly in New Hampshire over the years when I have not been elsewhere. I have done a number of jobs in various endeavors too numerous to mention and describe and am retired from active employments. HALFORD E. JONES"

 Our hosts will be Guro Federico Malibago, Guro John Bednarski, Guro Mark Basel and anyone else we can convince to join in on the madness.
