I have been actively involved in martial arts for over 40 years. It is my goal to share my knowledge with as many people as possible to improve the quality and length of their lives. I began my study of martial arts at the age of 10 with Grand Master Bo Kong who is a high ranking Tae Kwon Do instructor. I briefly studied Ishinryu Karate under Master Tom Devlin. I have been practicing Tang Soo Do for 4 decades. I have been fortunate to have studied this martial art under my Sa Bom Nim Grand Master C.S. Kim ( founder of the ITF) and instructor to Chuck Norris. I have received additional special training with Master John Gehosky.
Specialties: Tang Soo Do Instruction, Close and mid-range self-defense tactics, Joint locking and grappling.
