CCI05092012_00003From 1954 to 1964, Brian K Leishman lived in North Bay, Ontario, Canada. He attended JW Trusler Public School from Kindergarten to grade three, with fond memories of being taught by the founder’s wife, Mrs. Trusler in grade one. It was around this time when Brian was first exposed to Oriental culture. He clearly recalls eating at the Golden Dragon Restaurant with his parents, and being drawn to the atmosphere and people. Shortly after, Brian was introduced to the martial arts by his mother when she skillfully demonstrated a few Judo moves on his friend Paul. Being fascinated with the structured and classical execution, an early passion and interest grew for the martial arts.
