    At the age of 15 or so, he began to hone his craft by fighting with sailors who were on shore leave in Hawaii. Somehow ended up in New Jersey where I met him in the early 1980's, when he was teaching Jun Fan Kung Fu and Tai Chi. I didn't stay with him long, but he ignited a life long interest in training for me. Whenever I would run into him, he was always gracious with his time and teaching. Got to train with him again a few years ago, it was great fun to see how he had evolved his art.

    He is not a well-known teacher, except by a few out here in NJ. He lived the martial arts, his great passion along with fishing. He'd be really pissed off by referring to him this way, but……Thank you, Master Alex Kiupe.

  3. I studiously avoided the M word in referring to him, even as his effect on you clearly put him in that category.

    Randy L. Whynacht I had to wait until he was six feet under, or I'd have caught hell……..
