My training began September 21, 1991. I have been very lucky to learn from many different instructors and train in many different styles of Martial Arts over the past 20 years: Jiu Jitsu, Karate, Kali, Muay Thai, Kuntao, Bagua, and Arnis to name a few. I hold a 4th Dan ranking in Go Dai Henka Jiu Jitsu Ryu, a 3rd Dan ranking in Shintoyoshinkai Jiu Jitsu and a 2nd level Open Door Practitioner in Kuntao.

Martial Arts is a lifestyle for me. Pushing myself and the students to a healthier life is a goal I hope to achieve. Being an instructor at West Coast Martial Arts Academy is an honor. I look forward to passing down my knowledge to our students. I can only hope I bring to them what my instructors bring to me.
