Grand Master Clifford C. Crandall Jr. is a full time professional martial artist. This man has produced six instructional video tapes and authored three books in the field of the martial arts. His Tonfa book and Tonfa instructional video tapes have made him known as the Tonfa Master throughout the world since 1984. As a retired Superintendent of schools in the state of New York with classroom teaching experience plus the unusual combination of once being a principal of an elementary school, Kindergarten through fourth grades, and principal of a high school, Grand Master Crandall brings to his martial arts programs and materials an educational professionalism seldom seen in the area of martial arts. Grand Master Crandall is the founder of the American Martial Arts Institute American Eagle Style, but had such a strong interest in the Tonfa that he traveled to Japan to further his knowledge. As a result, "The Tonfa: An Extension of the Mind and Body," in both book and video were produced.
