FBI Aent Mark Crider and Black Belt in the ASKA came to visit our Beaverton Hombu Dojo the beginning of this month. Special Agent Crider is also a top firearms instructor for the FBI and Police and helped both Sensei Paul and Arnold Krell with their shooting skills.”Since my early training as a police officer back in Ohio I had become very rusty on shooting, but Mark revived a great deal of my former accuracy” said Sensei Paul.
In addition and another reason for his visit was to help advise one of our high school students to think about a summer internship with the FBI and to talk to her about life as a Special Agent.
Prior to joining the FBI Mark was a RIO (Radar Intercept Officer) in the Navy for 10 years flying the F14 Tomcat. We hope he will visit again soon.
