Hi, my name's Mike Nagano. I am from Chino, in Southern California, USA. I currently live in Mountain Ranch, in Northern California, but hope someday soon to be able to move to my cabin in Lake Tahoe, Ca. I am a special education teacher at a home school/charter school, but have spent the majority of my career in both the elementary and alternative education settings.

I have a 20 year old son, who is beginning his own life now, thus my number of (potential) training partners at home shrunk from one to zero!😂

I have been training on and off in the martial arts for about 35 years, spending the majority of my time in Kajukenbo and Shotokan, but have dabbled in Aikido, fencing, kenpo, and kungfu. The last 5-8 years I have added escrima and currently train in Modern Arnis/Kombatan at a school in Lake Tahoe (when I get the chance).

I have had an interest in Silat for quite a long time, but the availability of training has been non-existant. One of the good things to come out of this COVID situation over the past year-and-a-half has been the growth of online training possibilities. I have done a lot of research and tried out a few other systems/schools, but I have become very impressed with the comprehensive nature of the posts that I have seen from Harimau Berantai Silat and am very excited to start this new journey.
