#Quote
1Everything great that has happened in my life, like traveling the world as a rock and roll bodyguard and doing martial arts movies, has come as a result of just wanting to be the best martial artist possible.
2Many of the friends I've made through my training have turned out to be some of the most influential people in my life and are just like family to me. Because when you get right down to it, when you really think about it, the only thing that really matters in life is your honor and integrity and the relationship and love of your wife, family and friends.
3I will always strive to be a student of the arts and of life in general and just keep searching.
4I realized long ago that life is all about the journey and not about the destination. The moment you think you know it all you stagnate and die. Life and the arts are all about bodies in motion.
5In 1979 I was offered a job doing security on a U.S. tour with Linda Ronstadt as her personal bodyguard and trainer. So I went out to Southern California. I told everybody in Australia I'd be back in a month and 20 years later I'm still here.
