Professor Gary Dill – Episode 66
Some people have a calling for different things; to be a teacher. Some people have the calling to be a priest. I have a calling to be a martial arts instructor.
Today’s episode brings us Professor Gary Dill, a multi-disciplined martial artist best known for being one of the few remaining original students of Jeet Kune Do, the martial art pioneered by Bruce Lee. While this is absolutely not an episode about Bruce Lee, it’s impossible to discuss Professor Dill’s history and views on martial arts without the legend’s name being thrown around.
During our chat after the episode closed, Professor Dill shared some additional stories that he gave us permission to share, and those are tacked on at the very end of the episode. Everything he shared was great and this will definitely be an episode that gets some attention. Thanks for listening, and enjoy.
