About this pro

I specialize in teaching how to use Pressure Points to capitalize on the inherant weaknesses of the body.  Younger students will learn the basics of Karate while also learning some simple pressure point escapes and controls for self defense.

Adults can learn the full art for self defense and can go much deeper into the knowledge of Acupuncture principles to give them the tools to protect and defend.

I teach three separate arts: Ryukyu Kempo Karate, Small Circle Jujitsu and Modern Arnis.

Ryukyu Kempo involves the study of the true meaning behind the traditional forms.  The forms or "Katas" were created to teach how to use pressure points to defend any situation.  I also teach some sport fighting to let students see how fast a strike can come at them.

Small Circle Jujitsu also involves the use of pressure points to make the joint locks and arm and leg bars more effective.  It also incorporates throws, take downs and all potential striking techniques.

Modern Arnis is a Filipino Martial Art that teaches how to defend and fight with sticks.  This arts also has locking and striking techniques as well as knife defense.

I have been training and involved in Martial Arts since 1968.  My highest level is 9th Degree Black Belt in Ryukyu Kempo.  I am 6th Degree Black Belt in Small Circle Jujitsu and 3rd Degree Black Belt in Modern Arnis.  My website is:

I have taught self defense courses at the college level for over twenty six years.  Since the mid 90's I have taught seminars on pressure points all over the US, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Spain, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany, China and Hungary.

I enjoy meeting new people and helping them to empower themselves to be better prepared for the negative element we find in people that we may encounter.

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 52 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.
