About this pro

WRH Academy of Martial Arts is the ONLY Registered 501c3 Non Profit School serving the South Orange County area from our San Juan Capistrano 2500 sq ft Dojo.

We only charge what a student can afford as long as they TRULY want to learn!

6th Degree Senior Master Instruction in Shaolin Kempo Karate, Aikido, Jujitsu, Mixed Martial Arts and QiGong.    

Unlike most For-profit schools we do NOT have huge classes where students are churned through for testing fees and long term contracts to try and lock students in.    

We rely on tax deductible donations from the community and corporate donors and ALL employees are unpaid volunteers.


 The joy of seeing students performing things they thought were impossible is  A thrill of it never gets old. This is especially is the case when you teach those of smaller stature how to handle those larger stature.

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

When a new student arrives we go over what is to be expected and allow them to watch or participate in their first class, asking questions as they arise.

 We assess the skill level and  desire to learn as well as the physical fitness and place them in the appropriate classes and groups. 

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

 I have a 6th Degree black belt senior master ranking with over 40 years training and teaching martial arts  including Shaolin kung fu, Shaolin Kempo karate, Aikido , jujitsu and QiGong

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

As a nonprofit we always charge whatever  our students can afford, however our standard pricing for the community for those who can afford  our classes, range from $65 a month for aikido to $125 a month for Shaolin Kempo karate classes 

How did you get started teaching?

 I started teaching classes for my master instructors when I became a 1st Degree  black belt close to 25 years ago. 

What types of students have you worked with?

Usually students from age 5 to 16, we have many more girls than boys. In the adult classes the men and women are fairly evenly split. In our tai chi classes  students average from 50 to 90 years old. 

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

 We recently had a fundraiser where we are selling English bulldog calendars to help raise money 

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

There are many different types of schools, so I’m very military style and others very loose in their regimentation.  Find a school that fits your style. If the school tells you they’re the best system or the only system, run away. Observe classes and see how realistic the techniques being taught are for the real world.

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

 A student needs asked them selves why they want to take martial arts classes? If it is simply to learn how to fight, they are not the correct frame of mind to truly receive the benefits that come with martial arts training. The mind body and spirit are all affected and need to  A desired to be improved. Learning how to defend yourself is very different than learning how to hurt someone else.  That happens automatically but the wise practitioner realizes the more they learn the less they need to consider using it.
