Photo of the Week: Maddog & Sons

Maddog & Sons

Pictured with Greg “Maddog” Bendel, the fourteenth Black Belt of the Kiado-Ryu, are his two beautiful sons: Hunter (age 7, left) and Marcus (age 4, right). This photo was taken at the KIA’s thirtieth anniversary celebration at Dana Point Harbor on August 30, 2009, nineteen years after Maddog achieved his First Dan. He is now one of thirteen Second Degree KIA Black Belts.
