Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I offer a free lesson to prospective students. Before beginning the free lesson I ask what each student hopes to gain from karate & then tailor their lessons accordingly.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I began studying Tae Kwon Do in 1971 with Mr Roy Kurban & Mr John Conroy, earning my Black belt in 1975. I owned & operated the West Coast Black Belt Academy from 1974-1980.
In 1973 I began my study of Shorin-Ryu karate with Mr Steve Fisher. I taught classes at the Steve Fisher Karate School from 1975-1978 on an as needed basis. I began teaching full time in August 2013.
After Steve Fisher passed away in 2016 I assumed full responsibility & complete ownership of the school.

How did you get started teaching?
Teaching was always a part of my Tae Kwon Do training. Prior to reaching the rank of Brown belt teaching lower ranking belts during class was always part of my training.

I have taught students as young as 3-1/2 years old & as old as 75 years old.
I have taught children with Autism & children with physical disabilities.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I enjoy competing in karate tournaments both in Kumite & Kata winning trophies in each category.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Make certain the instructor loves & has a passion for teaching!!
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
They should ask themselves what they hope to achieve through the Martial Arts; belt rank, self-defense, self-confidence, self-control, weight loss or conditioning.
