When I was a younger man I dreamt of being a great martial arts SOMETHING. I wanted to be in the Olympics, I wanted to be in the winning lineup, I wanted to DO something interesting, exciting, and different. I ended up getting my black belt in Reno and then moving to San Jose (age 20) to join GM Ernie Reyes, Sr. —and these two fellows, Soo Gin Lee and Gary Nakahama —they welcomed me, embraced me as a friend —and looking back...man, we had a good time.
I owe a thanks to The West Coast Demo Team, everyone on and around it —for creating some fine, fine memories. I believe we played full out. Thank you my friends. Thank you. #erniereyesjr #erniereyes #westcoastdemoteam #sanjose #martialarts
