I officially became a school owner in 2001, and have been teaching martial arts in some form or fashion ever since. I believe that God gave me a desire for teaching, whether it be children or adults helping people gain confidence and realize their goals through Self Protection gives me great pleasure.

Why did you get into Martial Arts?
I originally became interested in martial arts because I was exposed to Bruce Lee and Jim Kelly, even though I could tell he really couldn't do the moves lol. I didn't start taking martial arts until some time later when a family friend that instructed Judo Mr. George Edmonds Sr. asked my father to allow him to teach me. I didn't stay in Judo for too long, because I had not learned to accept losing and was unable to handle a loss at an important meet. I started Tae Keon Do in high school and have pretty much been training since in some form or fashion..
