Being a martial arts practitioner for over 34 years and an Instructor for 13 years holding 3 Black Belts in 3 disciplines, it is nice to actually help treat people rather than teaching someone to defend, or fight.

“ I love teaching, and seeing whether its a fresh student or experienced one, learning new techniques and progressing their knowledge in helping others.'
