Charles Nelson at Camp Lejeune, N.C.

Mr. Charles Nelson passed away on Decemeber 10, 2003 after a brief illness. Mr. Nelson continued to teach self-defense right up until his passing. He was a wealth of knowledge about self-defense and life to those who knew him. On some of his last interviews taped by his successor Robert Spiegel, he was developing a new component to his teachings he termed “Social Self-Defense.” He was always looking to update and refine his system right up to the end.

I consider it an honor to have known and studied with Mr. Nelson and thank his family for all their support in continuing his teachings.
