FAQs


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

Foundational training is the start of all of my students journey into martial arts.  Just as I started over 21 years ago I still follow close to the same training I received when I was a student at the Red Phoenix Kung Fu and Martial arts Academy.

We work on finding the students balance first, then building their foundation.  After those steps we start working on the basics of the art that they wish to learn.  


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

I have 21 years of training in multiple Martial Arts.                3rd Degree Master of Northern Shaolin Kung Fu                      4th Degree Master Instructor of Yang Family Tai Chi                3rd Degree Master in Baguazhang                                          3rd Degree Blademaster of Silat                                            Extensive training in HEMA (Historic European Martial Arts) 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I offer private, group and public classes. Message me for more details. 


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching to help my instructors out in their own schools.  Natural progression and my instructors retiring or moving forced me to start teaching so I could continue my journey in the arts. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have taught hundreds of students directly in schools I have taught at.  Aside from that I have presented classes at national events all over the country to countless students in the last 15 years. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I just recently taught Tai Chi and a guided meditation class to the Oklahoma Fall Arts Instute at Quartz Mountain.  It was an absolutely amazing event, the countryside and the people created a atomosphere of peace that brought me to tai chi in the first place.


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

Do your research and find the art that you feel connected to. Or find a teacher and try out a art that calls to you. 


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

Think about what your wanting, what your training goals are.
