How did you get started teaching?

I began teaching 3 and 4 year olds as I grew up in my father's karate school.  I was 12 years old when I started assisting Instructors, then I became an Instructor and eventually a  4th degree Master Instructor.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from ages 3 to 73.  I have worked with some students with physical disabilites and students with ADHD and discipline problems.  I have also worked with groups of 50 students, ages 4 to 15 as well as adult students seeking martial arts training and personal training.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm very fond of the news article in the August 2018 Stapleton Front Porch, where I am featured.  It was fun, telling my story of my passion in teaching martial arts.

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

Make sure the Instructor is credible, trustworthy and passionate about teaching.

Ask questions so you are aware of the cost involved.

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

Are they willing to commit to training in martial arts, since there will be challenges for everyone and it takes dedication
