FAQs


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

First of all, an applicant must complete a skills and strength assessment. Then they are instructed in the use of impact, edged, projectile, flexible and improvised weaponry. We help them develop their speed, strength, accuracy, stamina, agility and strategy. 


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

My doctorate degree is in dental medicine but my undergraduate studies were for pre-med. I've been in the martial arts since 1976 and have mastered two systems of martial arts namely Kali and Tae Kwon Do and studied several others to augment my skill sets. My wife and co-instructor, Melody and I are the world's highest ranked knife throwing couple.

How did you get started teaching?

Teaching was a natural progression for me after I had an accident that severely limited my ability to practice dentistry. As an undefeated, martial arts tournament champion, I taught martial arts primarily to civilians and the general public. However, after 9/11, I  was hired more and more by government agencies, law enforcement and military due to the content and quality of our system. Because of this, our methods have evolved to offer more of the most effective techniques that my late instructor refused to reveal to the public. 


What types of students have you worked with?

Our students have ranged from age 4 to 84. We have instructed students,  teachers, professional fighters, newbies, mayors, district attorneys, clergy, medical personnel, military, law enforcement, bodyguards, housewives, circus clowns, entertainers, special agents, disabled (blind, wheelchair bound or missing a limb), ADHD, autistic, Down's syndrome, business owners, executives, gay, straight, religious, agnostics, etc. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

We recently concluded a three day knife and ax throwing championships in April with 50 competitors from France  Switzerland, Canada, and the US. And we are going to be teachingteaching knife and axe throwing to over 1,500 people over the course of 9 days at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at the Buffalo Chip in SD. 


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

Experience is everything. Find an instructor who has mastered their system over the course of decades. A seasoned and knowledgeable  instructor mustmust know how to adapt their system to fit the needs of the student and not the other way around. Ask questions. Take notes. Practice until you can't get it wrong. 


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

How will this change my life?

Will this benefit me in all aspects of my life or is this just a sport?

How much time and effort am I realistically willing to commit to achieving this goal?
