Instructional Biographies

This will be the first of many posts with this theme. The term instructional biography means there are lessons in the history of this person's life. They may or may not relate at all to your life. They are not good or bad, right or wrong. They simply exist.
Real life is not all about victories, clever situations, or being flawless. It is about failing, problems, depression, and the ability to deal with them. Conflict is not cured, it is managed.
Following is a link to a web page about Bernie Lau. He was an undercover cop and has been a profound martial arts practitioner. He came from the old school. This, to me is refreshing in a day when shaved heads, tattoo's, and TV cameras are more important than focus, discipline, and respect.

Very nice! I remember when the magazine Full Contact was around they wrote a good article on Bernie.
