Long Ch-uan Kung Fu 775-537-8857

Background: “I started teaching kung fu in 2010. It took me four years to earn my black sash. I love martial arts and started with other arts while in the Marine Corps in 1986. I was in the Marines for 10 years from 1981 until 1991. I was in the Gulf War and was a tanker. I earned my first black sash from Sifu Glen Bullock and my second in tai chi from Sifu Steven Baugh at the Lohan School in Las Vegas.”

First job: “My first job was when I enlisted as a U.S. Marine.”

Personal: “I love to ride my Ninja motorcycle when I am not working. I have a Ninja 650. I also like to go off road when I can.”

Business climate: “For me, kung fu is not a business. I like to pass it on and enjoy teaching it. It’s a passion for me. Taking kung fu, one can improve your health and learn to defend yourself. Each individual does it for different reasons. This takes time and you learn only by doing. I will even teach a class for free so a person can see if it’s for him.”

IN SEASON: Carrots, a kaleidoscope of colors, sizes and shapes

Carrots are a pretty inexpensive vegetable to buy at the grocery store, and for this reason many gardeners do not grow them. I like to grow them because they come in beautiful varieties and can fit easily between other vegetables in the garden. That space would not be used otherwise so I like to make good use of it.
