I’ve known about Master Eric Lee ever since I was 9 years old, when I first became a Martial Arts practitioner back in Bulgaria. He was and still is a living legend. It was my dream to meet him and to learn from him. But back then that was more like one of those dreams that aren’t realistically expected to come true. I was 20 years old, when I came to the US as a part of the Bulgarian National Team. I bought a ticket for the Dragonfest with almost last money I had. Than and there my dream came true. I met the legend-Eric Lee. He actually looked at one of my photos and complimented my jumping kick. I couldn’t sleep that night. And as if that wasn’t enough, later I got to know Eric Lee’s excellence not only as a Master, but as a human. A man with a big heart, generous, genuine. Always a father figure to his students. I was invited to attend his Action Seminar Workshop on Oct. 5th and 6th of this year. I’ve known Eric Lee as one of the best form performers who’ve ever lived. I’ve also known about his Chi Kung, Meditation and heeling techniques. But what blew my mind was the self defense system that he demonstrated and especially the anti-grappling techniques. Now I’m someone who knows self-defense. I even teach it. I’ve done TV-shows for BNT about self defense. Those who knew me back in Bulgaria can testify- I had my share of street fights too. So I’m always very critical when it comes to self-defense thinking “I know the real deal…….I know how it’s done and how it feels too…..” But the explosive power, the simplicity and the efficacy that I saw Master Lee demonstrate, you have to see it and to feel it to believe it. I was fascinated by what I saw, so I kept talking about it… I had to bring my friend the next day. Master Lee, Thank You for giving us Gold!

All my respect and well wishing:
