What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Beginning students are first assessed with general or basic karate  exercises, measuring their ability before progressing onto specific exercises.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I currently teach a private club in Woodside California and a public Club and Menlo Park California at the Menlo Park Arrillaga Community Center.

How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching karate in 1995 under the direct guidance of Cornell Watson in San Jose California.

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

For any student looking to hire a martial arts teacher I highly recommend requesting copies of their claimed credentials as well as verification that fingerprint data (criminal background check) is up-to-date and complete.
