Welcome to the official website of Professor Gary Lee’s much anticipated new book – Memoirs of An American Samurai.

In “Memoirs of An American Samurai”, Professor Gary Lee shares special insights and experiences from his incredible journey from humble beginnings in Hawaii to the Halls of Fame.

Tales from the “Old Sensei” as he calls himself told in his inimitable style conjure up a bygone era peppered with golden nuggets of life lessons and martial arts insights.

Martial Arts enthusiasts and general readers alike will enjoy as Gary Lee draws them into his world to share his adventures.



  1. I look forward to the publication and learning the journey so many have shared. Time is short to record these experiences and Professor Gary Lee will have some exciting tales to tell.
    These are the steps to the coming Musuem of Sport Karate envisioned and soon to become reality.
    I hope everyone shares this new publications with their students.
    Good Luck and reserve my copy.
