We focus on building a strong community by offering reduced rates on classes for those that have been the victim of assault or bullying. It’s more important that I teach students who truly appreciate the training and I make enough money to live on; them I teach hundreds and no one respects the training.
I love helping students feel empowered again. I love watching my students practice and learn until a new technique “clicks” and they suddenly jump a bit or achieve a bit closer to their next rank.

the student gets scheduled and comes to their trial class. We do a group warm up then either myself or my assistant instructor takes the new student and teaches the level 1 self defenses; as well as the first few strikes and blocks and the basic stepping for sparring.
then the student applies that knowledge with the rest of the class.
I hold 1st degree black belts in Xin-Tao karate and I Olympic Tae kwon do.
I started teaching as a part of my karate training when I got closer to black belt. I teach this self defense program because it focuses on empowerment and personal protection from class 1.
I’ve worked with all types of people. I’ve had obese students; students with physical or mental disabilities; students healing from assault; and students dealing with bullying.
Ask a lot of questions; really dedicate yourself to the trial and complete it. Make sure you feel you’re in an environment that you can learn and grow at your own pace while having fun and getting in shape.
