    Thanks Dr Joe,

    I was under your care to lose weight back in 2002. I went from a fitness age of 64 to 26 in 90 days. Thanks for your help. We moved to California in April 2003. My son, Tony, a black belt in Taekwondo since age 9, was impressed with your Cane Master video. I hope some day Cane Master will be taught here in Sacramento. Next time I am in Miami, we will look you up, same for you if you ever get to the Sac/San Francisco area.
