Dan Harden is the best martial artist I have ever met, bar none. I consider it an honor to train with him and to call him a close personal friend.
I think that about sums it up.
Yeah, yeah, but whaddya know. Youse goin' soft in the head wit' da prospect of fodderhood. What dontcha
know . . . . about Dan? The stories I could tell ya 'bout da guy . . . . .
. . . . would only reinforce your opinion, so I won't repeat them here.
I was just in China, looking for tea not fights, but still got some unexpected training in anyways. On this and past trips, I've had the opportunity to meet some very skilled martial arts practitioners and teachers. I've met and gone hands-on with several hundred from around the world over the past 15 years. No one is better than Dan, as a martial arts practitioner or as a martial arts teacher, in my experience.
I haven't met anyone worse at answering e-mails or returning phone calls, but that is another skill set entirely.
