About the Author

Jerry Beasley has more than 30 years of experience in the martial arts and holds a ninth-degree black belt in karate. He is a member of the Black Belt (magazine) Hall of Fame and was voted Black Belt's Instructor of the Year 2000.

Referred to as the published authority on American karate by Inside Karate magazine, Beasley is the author of American Karate: The Master Text. He was also the jeet kune do columnist for Karate International magazine from 1989 to 1997.

Beasley is the founder of AIKIA World Martial Arts Masters and is the director of Karate College, a world-famous mixed martial arts summer camp. He is the first American to earn master's and doctoral degrees for his research in martial arts education and has since been recognized by Black Belt as America's foremost martial arts educator.

Beasley lives in Christiansburg, Virginia, with his wife, Gina.
