A black belt since the age of fourteen Mr. Griffin was one of the youngest (if not "the youngest"), person to ever own and operate his own martial arts school in Rocky Mt. N.C.  Mr. Griffin, in three divisions is a four time (1995, 97-99) FLMA Florida State sport karate champion, a one time KRANE (1998), Florida State sport karate champion (in two divisions), a one time NASKA, (1998), US Open National Weapons champion and the member of the national sport karate team, "Team Pepsi," (2001-2002).  He has also sat on the board (as Secretary), of one of the largest sport karate leagues in the state of Florida.  He holds two black belts, in Tae-Kwon-Do-Ouh-Do-Kwon and in June-Soon-Dao-Kung-Fu and currently holds an advanced rank in the art of Tai-Ch'uan-Tao under the tutelage of Master John Gabriel.

Co-Author; Master John J. Gabriel
With a record of awards internationally, Mr. Gabriel ever so humble has done little to promote himself, working instead to promote his system and his many students.  He is currently ranked a seventh degree black belt in the art of Tai-Ch'uan-Tao.  In 1967-1970, Mr. Gabriel received his 1st degree black belt in Tae-kwon-Do under the tutelage of Mr. William Cowens.  Later in 1973, he received his 1st degree black belt in Tai-Ch'uan-Tao under the tutelage of Master Cheng Lu and now holds his 7th degree Master.  In 1973, he was the "1st American" to enter and win the open fighting and weapons divisions, at the prestigious Taiwan Invitational held every three years in Taiwan and Hong Kong.  In 1973-1976, he became a member of the “United States A.A.U. Sport Karate Team” and held the #1 title for the fighting and forms divisions.  Between 1974-1976, he competed in the Professional Kickboxing Association (PKA).  In 1974-1976, he became an International Triple Crown winner (forms; fighting, & weapons) for W.U.K.O. (world union karate organization).
In 1978, he formed the first “Red Dragon Martial Arts Academy” and the “American-Tai-Ch'uan-Tao Association,” which has since grown rapidly with over 5000 members.  Over the years he has personally trained over thirty state, national, and world champions, and has also been a personal body guard for such celebrities as Rodney Dangerfield, Sid Cesar, Kiss, Ozzie Osborne, Crystal Gail and Warren Beatty just to name a few.  In 1996 he was inducted into the “World Martial Arts Hall of Fame,” for the "Life Time Achievement Award."  Today, he is still actively teaching while continuing his efforts as the president of the Association, as well as the president of The Florida League Of Martial Artists (FLMA), sport karate league in Clearwater, Florida one of the largest sport karate leagues in the state.  He is also the Executive Director for the Florida NASKA Super Tour and national coach for Team Pepsi. He has a vision, to make Tai-Ch'uan-Tao known, not only as an excellent sport karate art, but also as an art, capturing the essence of true martial arts… mind, body, and spirit.

"Take that! It was good enough to defend Ozzie Osborne, Warren Beatty, Kiss and other notable celebrities!"

 "Walking the Martial Path," --Searching for the Tao within you.

List Price: $19.95  
Trade Market Paperback - ISBN#  Not yet Released!

Book Description
Is There Life in the Martial Arts without Philosophy?
Searching for the Tao within You

For thousands of years the martial arts have been synonymous with enlightenment.  However, for the last thirty, within the west, with the exception of a select few, it has been lost.  What has happen to philosophy in the martial arts?  To what state has it dwindled?  With today's teachings, new generations of young martial artists see the arts as an art of physicality.  An art to master cool kicks, flips, and trips.  Long gone, by many, are the teachings of our ancestors, the great masters of our past we once held so dear and promised to pass on.  The teachings that once lead us to such enlightened states.  With the generations past, sadly to say, the martial arts have become an art of commercialism.  An art that has dwindle to receiving money for little exchange.  Instructors who have given black belts away for mear paper profits, therefore leading to students unable to perform the most basic of exercises within the system and thus unable to quote philosophical teachings.  Black belts made, when on observation are realistically at the intermediate level.  And so, it is with commercialism that the martial arts have dwindled, to an abandonment of the true essence of martial arts philosophy.  It is a total concentration on the physical and not a good one at that by many, which has helped bring the martial arts to its present.  But where will the next millennium take us?  Should we continue on this path of the physical and completely abandon the spiritual?  Is there life in the martial arts without philosophy?  It is no doubt, that the end result will wind up being what is done now.  As a fellow martial artist do you dare to learn the full aspects of your art, do you dare to question what you are being taught, do you dare to imagine a world where the martial arts can still lead you to enlightenment?  The authors believe it can.  Read, "Walking the Martial Path," and search for the Tao within you.

"Walking the Martial Path," is a wonderful brilliance into the martial arts world.  The old teachings of the Tao brought into new light for the next generation.  Just like thousands of years ago, the martial arts can still lead you to enlightenment.  One needs only to have the knowledge to get there.  "Walking the Martial Path," brings a step-by-step look into the true essence of achieving the martial way.  Covering philosophy, morals, ethics, and the true embodiment of the martial arts… achieving total mind body and spirit.  Read this book, and know the Tao within you.
