I'm revising my original website at kungfu4u.com. It is mostly used now to showcase my DVDs (they're also available through this blog--see the column on the right side of this page).
In writing the bio page, I did a Google search for one of my former teachers, Karen Vaughn. She was a highly ranked tournament competitor in the 70's and 80's and taught Tien Shan Pai Kung-Fu in Cincinnati, where I studied with her for several months and won my first 1st place trophy at a big tournament. I had already studied Shaolin kung-fu and Taekwondo by the time I moved to Cincinnati. This was my first experience with what they called "wushu."
Karen Vaughn was the first American woman to study with the founder of Tien Shan Pai. She moved from Cincinnati at some point, after my TV career took me to Omaha, where I became a student of Sifu Phillip Starr.
I found this video on YouTube of Karen Vaughn and a performance from 1982. She was a nice person and very talented. Good teacher, too.
