I'm a Hall of Fame Instructor that has trained in the Martial Arts for almost 38 years. I have taught for almost 27 years. I'm a 2 Time CKL Champion that has developed Champions and Black Belts. I started my training in October 1979 at the age of 9. Every student goes at their own pace. We focus on the fundamentals because those are the building blocks to help every student develop ability. Everything is done on a gradient gradual basis.
I enjoy and love seeing my students grow, gain confidence, and achieve their goals. This is the most satisfying aspect of teaching.

It was my Instructor's philosophy to allow his students to teach occssionally as they went up the ranks. This is what I did. When I received my Black Belt, I taught for my Instructor on ocassion before I began teaching Professionally.
I have worked with students of different personalities, nationalities, abilities, and challenges. The ages I have trained ranged from 3 years to 80 years.
I had 3 of my students from my children's class that just took their belt test on Saturday. Miguel Galvez passed his Blue Belt test, Emir Castillo passed his Purple Belt test, and Jordan Garcia passed his Yellow Belt test. They all did very well!
The advice I would give any student looking to hire an Instructor in the Martial Arts would be to ask these questions:
1) Does your potential Instructor communicate well?
2) Is your potential Instructor patient?
3) What is your potential Instructor's background regarding
area of expertise?
4) What is your potential Instructor's longevity in the Martial Arts?
5) What is your potential Instructor's longevity in the current location?
Questions to think through before talking to Instructors about their needs:
1) What am I trying to accomplish and what are my goals in
the Martial Arts?
2) What do I want to learn?
3) How often will I train?
4) What is my day and time schedule?
5) What do I need help with specifically?
6) How do I get better at a technique, exercise or skill?
