Greg Ford

I started Karate in 1983 at the age of 28. I had played Racquetball for Quite a few years, but was looking for something a little more rewarding. I definitely got what I was looking for, and then some.

I was Sensei Saud’s first Shodan (black belt). I currently hold the rank of Sandan (3rd degree black belt). I have won the USKK Grand Nationals in 1994 and again in 1995, as well as other various semi-local tournaments.

I am married with six children, and three beautiful grand-children. I work at Home Lumber in sales and purchasing.

"Studying Karate has been an interesting and rewarding journey, one which I feel I am still just beginning. I have made some very close friends. Some have gone their own way, and others who have had the courage and commitment to stay, have become family."
