"Dave Hazard is without a doubt one of the most talented karateka that this country has ever produced. He has excelled in every aspect of karate practice, kumite and Kata, competitor and instructor. He is one of a rare breed that has superb technical ability yet it is well documented that he can apply that same technique in the most violent of situations. What really continues to still impress me though is his continuous thirst for knowledge and his ability to innovate. Dave Hazard is an inspiration to everyone who meets or trains with him."
