I was honored at the 8th Chinese Kung Fu Karate Masters of Martial Arts Expo and Banquet in Atlantic City, March 29, 2014, with an extraordinary award. The 23″ trophy reads as follows:
Masters of Martial Arts Awards
Revered Original Father of Martial Arts
Hanshi Stephen F. Kaufman
Most Impactful International Martial Arts Author of Our Time
I was completely surprised at the level of acclaim given to me and acknowledged by a bevy of world-famous martial arts masters of Chinese, Japanese, and American martial arts schools, styles, and disciplines. It is a most unique celebration of a man’s work to be considered on this level of accomplishment.
