My portrait of Ninja, Rick, “Ryuama”(Dragon Mountain)Henderson of the Triple Cities Martial Arts Academy of Upstate New York, made it into the show.

Rick is a licensed Art of Combat trainer, holds six world titles in Kata and Sparring and is current World Heavy Weight Sparring Champion. Despite the fact he could knock you out in the blink of an eye, Rick is the kindest and most gentle person, I have ever met. Full disclosure, he’s my brother-in-law!
