Dan began his study of Kendo (traditional Japanese swordsmanship) in 1990 under Duk Yeong Kim, progressing to the rank of Yon-dan (4th degree black belt). Kim Sensei also provided Dan instruction in the art of Shodo, or Japanese calligraphy. Although his sensei passed away in 2007, Dan continues to practice Shodo to honor his teacher. His art was exhibited in Lancaster, PA in 2009 and 2010. In September 2012, Dan's work was featured in Harrisburg, PA at The Gallery at Second.
He holds the rank of Roku-dan (6th degree black belt) in Order of Isshin Ryu karate and was named the 2008 Male Instructor of the Year by the International Isshinryu Hall of Fame. In July 2013, Dan was inducted into the Isshinryu Hall of Fame, becoming the 101st member.
