About the Author
Brian K Leishman was born in Bay, Ontario, on April 14th, 1954. He has been a martial art practitioner since 1972, and has applied himself to developing and documenting the White Lotus System of Unarmed Combat® since its founding in 1980. Mr. Leishman created the White Lotus System for the purpose of sharing his ideologies, methodologies, processes, practices, and standards of martial preparation.
People will often ask about the linage, history, and known of the system's founder. Being plain, addressing these questions has no for you - the reader - as a prospective student or student. An appropriately scientific and skeptical should challenge this line of questioning, it as an evident from resolving direct questions specific to skill development. It is reasonable to ask "How does any of this help me?"
These facts make for an and even entertaining story... but that's about it.
Who a person knows, where they have been, and who likes or appreciates them is not material to skill development. more specifically, to your skill development. These will not help you acquire knowledge and develop skill. These should not be the basis for measuring and establishing in this system - in any system - or it's of martial preparation. For these reasons, these are not mentioned or addressed here, or in any aspect of the system as it exists.
The question of "who the founder is" is better addressed by scrutinizing the system's ideologies, methodologies, processes, and practices in detail. If you do this, and come to appreciate, leverage, and adopt the system, you will learn everything you need to know about the system's founder.
