Dian Tanaka was born in Tokyo, Japan, and moved to the San Francisco Bay area with her family at the age of 7. Her interest in the martial arts began when she watched a karate class at Chuck Norris’ Karate School in Los Angeles; she began her study in Kenpo in the late ’70s at an Ed Parker school run by Mr. Harvey Clary.
