Master Brusso started studying Judo at the age of 6. He continued with the arts all his life. He was in the Vietnam War era where he continued to hone his skills. After his tour he went to college and received his BSEE from Sacramento State. He continued to study: Wing Chun, Hopkido, Arnis, Ninjutsu, just to name a few. He formed the art of Anjing Banfa in 1980 at LLNL.
He was in several magazines (Ninja Magazine) and books. He was also in the BBC special "Crazy Rulers of the World" Part 1. Then he is in the book "the men who stare at goats" chapter 8. And finally George Clooney plays him in the movie "the men who stare at goats". Master Brusso also invented the self defense weapon line known as the defenders. Those too got in both the BBC special, the book and the movie.
The rest as they say is history.
