Exploring the Life and Times of Doug Perry

For individuals who operate within traditional karate circles, you probably already know a little bit about Doug Perry. He is one of the most widely celebrated and honored practitioners of classical Okinawan Karate. He is also a veteran of the Vietnam War and a decorated Marine. Of course, that’s not all. He’s also a champion dancer, organizational head, family man, and much more.

Perry Sensei’s accomplishments and ease-of-manner have made him a valued commodity not just here in the United States, but in Okinawa as well. Nakazato Shugoro Sensei personally promoted Perry Sensei to Kudan (9th Dan), making him the first non-Okinawan to receive that honor.

In this book, Doug’s son Jason (an accomplished Marine and martial artist in his own right), digs more deeply into his father’s martial and military careers, as well as his humble upbringings and struggle to learn about family life.
