Jim Keenan

One of my greatest regrets of my recent move is the distance I find myself from my friend, Jim Keenan.
Jim is an Original.
Originally he studied Isshinryu Karate in the Pittsburgh Penna. area.
He went on to become a translator of Japanese and Chinese.
Studied the Chinese arts of Tai Chi and Bagua, studied Krav Maga from the arts founder in Israel as well as many other accomplishments.
His many visits were always interesting. For one thing when we watched Chinese movies, the old ones with English and Chinese subtitles, he would translate the Chinese, pointing out the dialogue in Chinese, did not match the Chinese on the screen, or the English translation shown.
Here is an old Black Belt article about  Jim.
