Extensive experience teaching children

Fun, friendly, and firm.

Father of 2 kids, age 1 and 5 (girl and boy).

I spent a long time looking for the perfect martial art, with the right blend of practicality and battle-tested effectiveness. My journey started in Idaho in the early '90s, studying Kantan-Kyo Jiu-jutsu and Wing Tsun Kung-fu.
