Ever see the old movies where the Instructor barks and yells like a drill sergeant? I could teach that way if I wanted. In fact, I used to. But I don't anymore.
I am as serious as the next instructor about what I want from my students. I want them to push themselves to improve in all aspects of the art. I expect nothing less than a student's best effort and for my students to show expertise and skill consummate with their training level. I firmly believe that this can be done in a fun atmosphere where students can enjoy coming to class. The more students enjoy class, the more they will come to class. I am not the best teacher. Time and repetition are the best teachers. What I do is make it fun, so the real teachers get the job done.
I encourage you to click around our site. Take a look around and discover what you can. Then, when you are ready, click on the page to try a class. That one click could make a huge difference in the quality of your life.
