About this pro

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.

How did you get started 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. 

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students of different personalities, nationalities, abilities, and challenges. The ages I have trained ranged from 3 years to 80 years.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

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! 

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

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?

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

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?
