Martial Arts Background: Liddell began training in Koei-Kan karate when he was 12 years old, though he’s best known for his association with the Kempo Karate style taught by John Hackleman.
Hackleman’s style relies less on katas than “natural fighting techniques and conditioning,” according to its inventor.
He has an extensive striking background in American Kenpo, Koei-Kan Karate, and kickboxing, as well as a grappling background in collegiate wrestling and Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
Liddell was born in Santa Barbara, California and is of English descent.
