Torri L. says, "John is a great teacher. He is patient with explaining each action, he teaches the name of each move, and he is flexible with pacing. I requested to speed up some moves pretty early once I felt comfortable and he was receptive. He is full of knowledge and explained some of the history and meaning behind the teaching which I enjoyed and did not expect. I am doing Chi Gung to manage stress, back pain, and retrain my breathing. It's working and I'm happy with the teachings." Read more

Hi everyone. I teach self-defense techniques. My background is in Karate Shotokan, Aikido, and WuShu. I have been doing martial arts for nearly 30 years, on and off. I can also teach you how to fight with a knife and how to defend against a knife. You are welcome to contact me if you are interested. I don't have a dojo because this is not my full-time job, so the lesson can take place at a local park of your choosing or in your own backyard, or at a private fitness center if you live in an apartment complex that has one.
