I am the only instructor in Austin, Tx. that has been personally trained and certified 5th degree black belt (sensei level) by Sensei Benny "The Jet" Urquidez , who is the longest reigning undefeated World Champion throughout ALL professional sports, and who re-wrote the book on standup fighting 40 years ago...a source of knowledge of many top champions.
I have studied and practiced fighting for 60 years.
I have been teaching for 11 years.
I particularly enjoy training an experienced fighter long enough for them to be humbled by realizing how little their previous training had to offer. UKIDOKAN is the most advanced and comprehensive sport kickboxing system in the world.
Using unique, high quality instructions with clear answers for tough situations, Sensei Steve helped me surpass classmates in other gyms with astonishing haste. I advise everyone at any level to seek Sensei Steve first to improve their skills & IQ in fighting.
Before I started training with Sensei Steve I thought I could fight. I could usually hold my own and I was in the mindset of "a strong offense is the best defense". Ukidokan quickly tought me that any offense can be dismantled by a strong defense, and strategic offense. Ukidokan will teach you how to read your opponent and take away their confidence by making dismantling their offense. I've trained in multiple martial arts, and none of them were quite like this. You will be pushed to your limits, you will get bruised, and you will be humbled, but you will develop a skill and understanding of fighting on a level will above the rest! Sensei Steve is a great teacher, and his love and appreciation of the martial arts comes through in every lesson. Life changing!
Thorough and precise instruction tailored towards each student individually. I really felt like the best part of my martial art was brought out! 10 for 10 would recommend!
My students have to show that they are physically capable of performing the training that I give, as well as understanding the responsibility that comes with it.
I will adjust a students training according to their experience level to build them, but throughout continuing training, there will always be awareness of correct fundamentals.
I have a lifetime of studying and practicing fighting, as well as specifically studying UKIDOKAN since 1982, when I met Sensei Benny "The Jet" Urquidez, who personally trained me for 7.5 years.
$120 for the 8 classes per month that are on Mondays and Wednesdays. Beginners at 7-8pm and intermediate and advanced at 8-9pm.
$100 per hour for private instruction.
I started teaching when I realized that I have more knowledge of sport kickboxing than all the other instructors that I've met in the last 20 years....other than Sensei Benny himself and his top instructors.
