Bill Damon, 8th Degree Black Belt, has devoted over 45 years to perfecting and teaching the martial arts. In keeping with true karate tradition, his quest for physical mastery has gone hand-in-hand with his pursuit of intellectual and spiritual excellence.
Sensei (Japanese for Teacher) Damon is a co-founder of the USA National Karate-do Federation. The USA National Karate-do Federation is the national governing body for karate in the United States and is a member of the United States Olympic Committee.
His martial arts training began in 1960 in Japan. Sensei Damon opened his first karate school in 1969 and during the 1970s served as the consultant on self-defense to the Connecticut State Justice Academy and is a certified police self-defense instructor.

He retired from competition in 1993, still holding these titles: US National Champion, Arizona State and Connecticut State Champion. Sensei Damon is also a two-time Karate All-American and a two-time USA Karate Federation National Champion.
