5-Element Martial Arts
I teach the real meaning of martial arts. I do not focus on sport, rather, I teach practical knowledge for street self protection or personal security.
I teach an extensive knowledge of Acupuncture principles or Pressure Points. I work with seasoned martial artists to take them to higher levels of skill, but I also work with beginners.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I communicate with new students to find out previous training, of any, and work to find their strengths and weaknesses. I start by teaching the basics of how to use pressure points. Training progresses by learning methods of drilling on learned muscle memory.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have nearly 55 years of training under some of the most famous teachers in the world.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I only advertise my private lessons. One hour costs $100, 5 one hour lessons costs $75 per hour and 10 one hour lessons cost $50 per hour.
I have group classes at my dojo that are comparable to other local schools in the greater Indianapolis area.
How did you get started teaching?
I started running my own classes because other schools were too generic. I started teaching at a student club at Indiana State University in 1973.
What types of students have you worked with?
I have taught students from 4 years old to mature government agents.
Describe a recent event you are fond of.
I was awarded Coins of Excellence by the Joint Chiefs of Staff for teaching my student who trained their security team.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Find out where they learned their art and ask technical questions about Acupuncture.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
They should find out if any of the training requires strength or athletic ability. If it does, it is probably a "Sport" system. Sport has rules, but real life doesn't.
