During this time he was introduced to both Form Tournaments and Fighting Tournaments.
Approximately 22 years ago, in his Thirties, Ed had the unique privilege to meet Sifu Henry Patterson. At this time Sifu Patterson introduced him to the Chinese Arts of: Wing Chun and White Crane Gong Fu, Shaolin Qin Na, Taijiquan and Qigong. In the years of training in these Chinese Arts, Ed has been invited to travel all across the United States to train with Dr. Yang Jing – Ming of www.ymaa.com and Master Yip Pui (Terence Yip) of www.yipwingchun.com
