About this pro

I've been studying martial arts for over 14years.  I have a 2nd degree black belt in Taekwondo and have been an instructor for about 8 years.  Currently I'm a Blue belt in Brazilian jiujitsu and spent about 8 years training in nogi Juijitsu.  I compete regularly in pro BJJ super fights and tournaments.  I'm also beginning my amateur mma career.  I've trained in both traditional Thai Muay Thai as well as Dutch style Muay Thai, furthermore I've competed in a number of kickboxing "smokers" and am looking to start fighting amateurly in it as well. 

 I have a deep passion for sharing my knowledge with my students and seeing how this knowledge gives them confidence!  It's truly inspiring to see someone on the journey towards their goals, both physical or mental.

    Mr Andrew Slater is a highly skilled and accomplished martial artist who is dedicated to perfecting his craft and teaching it to others. Mr Slater exemplifies what it means to be a martial artist. He is confident, focused and respectful and he instills the same in his students. His enthusiasm for his art and for his students is evident in his classes. He is energetic, passionate and committed to teaching and he challenges his adult and junior students to always work at or even slightly beyond their current skill level. Mr Slater taught my son and me taekwondo for two years and gave us the strong foundation we needed to continue our training and earn our black belts. Mr Slater has a wonderful sense of humor and a mischievous personality and like all exceptional teachers he uses humor, games and some occasional, well controlled mayhem and playfulness to create a fun energetic program where children, teens and adults can achieve their fitness and martial arts goals.

    I really like how comfortable he made me feel during my first lesson, didn't make me feel like I was dumb, and I really appreciate that. He never play the "alpha" card on me ether, I will definitely be returning, Thanks Andrew!!!!

How did you get started teaching?

I got started in Martial Arts because a family friend that I looked up to was competing in Taekwondo.  At first I absolutely hated it, I have vivid memories of crying and throwing tempertantrums when my mom would drop me off.  I didn't appreciate TKD until I got diagnosed with lymes disease and couldn't physically do it.  After I got better and started training I immediately wanted to test for my brown belt and catch up with them.  I failed miserably that testing and ever since then I have immersed myself in Martial Arts and expanding my knowledge of them.  I received my black belt in 2008 and began volunteering as an assistant at Clinton Taekwondo Academy (now Impact Martial Arts).


What types of students have you worked with?

 I've taught classes spanning all age groups and experience levels.  I have had wonderful experiences with students with learning disabilities as well as physical disabilities.
