    Master Donald is Amazing. The group is so personal and for my child the experience has been life changing. We Love DOCS, it's more than Martial Arts, it's a community!

  • Charmen Atchison

    Being a former collegiate athlete, I look for real training that provides real results, and unlike many other schools today, I learn to do things that will actually help me in a physical interaction.

  • Fadi Khadoor

    Too many things I can't list all of them but my favorite one is that I feel we are a family. Going to the dojo feels like I'm going to my house.

I like to get to know the students by having them work on the floor, and where parents are involved, have interactive communication with them.


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

I have been a martial arts practitioner since 1982, and share those years of experience with students.

How did you get started teaching?

I taught as a student in our system for years before becoming a black belt, and followed in the footsteps of my master, continuing his system even after his death in 2006.


What types of students have you worked with?

Disabled, autistic, seniors, toddlers, teenagers, adults, and persons with injuries.  


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

Always check out the school, and get a feel for the school culture to see if the values and atmosphere fit not only your personality but match the direction you want to go.


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

You should think about why you want to practice martial arts, and consider what you expect to gain, as well as give in return.  Ask yourself how willing you are to be open with your instructor, and consistent in the program.  It will take commitment and repetition to really see progress.
