Abstract:  Robert S. Moore, 45, a Texas-born jazz musician and martial arts teacher, was certified as Master Dharma Teacher on December 6, 1986. In an evening ceremony at the Providence Zen Center officiated by Zen Master Seung Sahn, Bob became the seventh American Zen student to be named as an Master Dharma Teacher, which is equivalent to "sensei" in the Japanese tradition. He has been a student of Soen Sa Nim's for 12 yews. Married and the father of three children, Bob teaches music at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles, is a Tai Chi instructor at the Aikido Ai Dojo in Whittier, and leads a small Zen group there. A former professor of music at Yale University, he was a co-founder of the New Haven Zen Center in 1975
