'I have known Lee for quite some time now and have been fortunate to train alongside him and have him as a student. The fact that Lee is prepared to take himself out of his comfort zone and enter into arenas outside of Karate is a credit to him. This attitude of openness and willingness to continue to search for more and add that to his own wealth of knowledge exemplifies everything I believe a true martial artist should be. Lee's passion for teaching and sharing his experience with his students is at the same high level as the material he teaches. I am proud to consider Lee a student, a fellow instructor and a friend and fully endorse anything Lee sets out to do within the world of Martial Arts and Self Defence.'
