Tom started his Martial Arts training at the age of 14 with Judo. He continued until he entered the United States Marines at the age of 17. He excelled in hand to hand combat training and was asked to help train his fellow Marines in Hand to Hand and Bayonet Fighting,

While serving my country, he was stationed in Japan where he had the opportunity to study under several great Masters. He then deployed to Vietnam, where he experienced real life hand-to-hand combat for survival. He received 3 Purple Hearts while serving his country in Vietnam.

Following his service in Vietnam, he was in the Philippines and studied Arnes, the Philippine Martial Art of Stick, Knife and Open Hand fighting.

At the conclusion of his military career, he became a Police Officer and attended many Defensive Tactics Training classes. Believing there was something missing in the training classes he attended, he started his own training business in the late 60s to educate others using real-life scenarios. Since then, he has trained hundreds of Police Officers in Knife defense, unusual weapons defense, and basic street survival.

Cane Loyalty

To all my Cane Practitioner friends: I have always taught that you must become one with your cane and I believe it, little did I realize that my cane became one with me and in its own little way humbles me. Like everyone I try to train much as possible there are times when I get a little cocky and move too fast saying to myself “I got this.” That is when my cane brings me back to reality by smacking me right upside the gourd! Hard enough to make me see stars and realize that my cane is saying slow down! Smooth is fast! Other times it is a slight tap on the elbow or other body parts. It is good to be brought back to reality realizing that this 76-year-old body will never be what it was at 18. To all my Cane friends Have a safe Thanksgiving and a wonderful Christmas. Tom from Cane Loyalty
