How did you get started teaching?

I starting teaching Martial Arts for the city of Detroit Recreation Department in 1991. My passion grew and in 1997 I opened my first dojo. 


What types of students have you worked with?

 I have worked with students ages 3 years old to 65 years. Students with strengths and students with disabilities.  I specialize in teaching children with Autism, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHA) and Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I held a back to school program for at risk and underprivileged children and to see the smile on some of those kid’s face was amazing. To know that what I love and take so passingly has a profound effect on them, was heart breaking.  


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

My advice would be, make sure that you don't go with the first school that gives you a good deal. (although that's a plus). You want a dojo that can provide you with great service, great results, great staff and attend to the needs of what you’re looking for. Remember quality is sometimes better than quantity. 


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

They should think about: If I take up Martial Arts will I be committed to it? do I have the time to dedicate at least two days a week? what do I want to get out of Martial Arts? Will this be something I can Afford? These are very important questions to ask yourself before walking into a Dojo.
