Bruce Tegner is a famous TV and film actor. He started his career in 1959 with the film called "Girls Town" in which he played the role of Nick, directed by Charles F. Haas, writers of the film are Robert Hardy Andrews and Robert Smith, released on October 5, 1959 and the cast of the film includes: Mamie Van Doren, Mel Torme, Ray Anthony, Margaret Hayes, Paul Anka, Cathy Crosby, Gigi Perreau, Elinor Donahue etc.

He acted in other TV series and films such as: "The Marriage-Go-Round", "The Adventures of Ozzie & Harriet" and in 1967 he acted in a film called "Good Times" in which he played the role of a Wrestler.

Additionally! Bruce Tegner was probably one of the foremost celebrity martial arts/fitness instructor’s in America back in the early 1950’s. Bruce Tegner was born in Chicago, Illinois in 1929. Bruce was literally raised up in a martial arts family as both his parents were judo & jujitsu instructors. Bruce’s father & mother began teaching the little dragon at

the age of two years old.

By the time Bruce Tegner reached the age of twenty-one years old, he had become a ‘California State Judo Champion’. Although Bruce Tegner was very athletically inclined, and naturally gifted as a young judo competitor, his interest lay more in the direction of becoming a top notch writer & educator in the field of martial arts & fitness. While enlisted in the U.S. Armed Services, Bruce Tegner close-ordered drilled several instructors in order to teach effective unarmed combat to numerous military personnel.

From 1952-1967, Bruce Tegner operated & owned a commercial martial arts school in Hollywood, California. Famous celebrities such as Rick Nelson & James Coburn trained at his school of martial arts. 20 years before Bruce Lee’s legendary "Jeet Kune Do’'combat system advocated being an eclectic approach to martial arts, Bruce Tegner had already refined, & developed his own eclectic combat system known as “Jukado”.

An avid empty-hands/weapons martial arts master, writer, film actor, film director, film producer & mass marketer; Bruce Tegner will always forevermore be considered by the ‘World Serrada Escrima Federation’ as the “GREAT GRAND AMBASSADOR OF MARTIAL ARTS IN AMERICA”

"Bruce Tegner has been in my opinion one of the first most solid monumental cornerstones in the evolution & the development of martial in America.

I for one will always pay great homage to Bruce Tegner, as his many training books has helped me to create an effective system of martial arts in my early formative years".

“Thanks GGM Bruce Tegner for blazing a trail for many”
