INSTRUCTOR

Beginning in 1969 with Karate and in 1972 with Tai Chi Chuan, I have spent over five decades training and teaching martial arts.  It has been and continues to be an honor and a privilege to work with amazing experts in self-defense along with smooth and powerful guides to energy flow.

Inspired by excellent practitioners,  Bob Ozman - Chris Thomas - Chris Martingilio - Mitch Pratt,  I began teaching and training in San Diego County in 2014 with the intent of sharing my knowledge with students from all types of backgrounds and skill levels.  I hold Master Instructor ranking and continue to research and grow in Yang style Tai Chi Chuan and Isshinryu Karate-Jitsu.

Instead of just going through traditional motions, I offer the unique opportunity to understand the classical meaning of movements and apply them in a modern way.
