Cabal Fang is an initiatory and martial art that marries practical self-defense and fitness with the Hermetic Mysteries. He is the author of several books both fiction and nonfiction, including "The Calisthenics Codex" which has been a Top 10 exercise e-book since its publication in 2015. He graduated from the University of Virginia in 1983 with a B.A. in English. He and his wife Karen are the proud parents of four children and five grandchildren.
