When I called to talk with Gary, he couldn't believe that the Jiu-Jitsu folks had organized a fundraiser seminar for him telling me, "I'm a two-strip blue belt, a nobody in the Jiu-Jitsu world." This is despite the fact that we trained together at Rigan Machado's academy back in the late '90s. He says, "I've been doing jiu-jitsu here and there with a lot of people." He's trained with Rigan Machado, Rey Diogo, Perry Hauck, Jordan Collins, Marc Laimon, Mike Rose, Gary Endo, Michael Jen, Roy Harris, Ethan Milius, Richard Bresler, Mike Ancheta, Andreh Anderson. Lonnie Phillips, Cindy Omatsu, Felicia Oh, Jimmy Tang and Dale Frank.

He trained in JKD and the Filipino Martial arts under Guro Dan Inosanto for 6 years. And has trained in the backyard Lameco Eskrima group under the late Pungong Guro Edgar Sulite.

Because Gary's Lung cancer is stage 4 and metastasized to his bones, the doctors have ruled out surgery. They have put him on a regimen of a cancer drug called Tarceva. Doctors are hopeful this will slow the cancer's growth.
