History of Arwrology
Arwology, written in 1943 by Dr. Gordon Perrigard, was for the military fighting man to help the war effort. Arwrology was his interpretation of military hand-to-hand fighting based on his extensive knowledge of Samurai Jiu-Jitsu and the human anatomy as it applied to medical science.
In 1946 Dr. Perrigard's Arwrology was deemed too violent by Canadian officials and banned. The publishing house was raided and the original manuscripts along with the platelets were destroyed. Dr.Gordon Perrigard along with his loyal instructors of the Canadian Society of Arwrologists went underground until the year 2000.
In 2000 Dr. Gordon Perrigard passed away at the age of 85. Then in 2001 a special caucus of the Canadian Society of Arwrologists inaugurated the American Society of Arwrologists, naming Robert C. Kasper Founder and 1st. Regent,
American Society of Arwrologists
Robert Kasper at that time was the Founder and Director of the Gung-Ho Chuan Association (GHCA). The GHCA is a WW2 Close-Combat research organization that trains and instructs the fighting principles and tactics utilized by the USMC Raiders and the Elite Allied Forces during WW2. Since 2001 Dr.Perrigard's principles and techniques have been incorporated into the GHCA's Close Combat Program of Instruction.
In July 2006 Robert Kasper was diagnosed with brain and lung cancer. Due to his failing health and terminal diagnosis he named his successor, Fred Bauer.
