Introduction: I teach English and martial arts at Las Positas College in Livermore, California. In terms of reading and writing, I teach both basic skills (non-transfer level) and transfer level reading and writing. In terms of martial arts, Setchu Ryu Jujutsu is a blend of Japanese jujutsu (small joint manipulation, chokes, throws) and Filipino Martial Arts (knife, stick, and empty hand) with additional elements of Hawaiian Lua.

Ray is great at communicating the basics in a way that is easy to remember. Sometimes trying to learn basic martial arts/self-defense can be intimidating but Ray created a very comfortable environment.

I have trained with Ray on a number of different occasions. His broad knowledge of different art forms and the length of which he has studied makes him a great teacher. His attention to detail is shown through in his ability to convey form, technique, and strength needed to become a martial artist.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For both martial arts and reading and writing, I try to keep pricing at $60 an hour, but it may vary depending on the number of students and skill level.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    For reading and writing, the customer's prior experience and academic goals dictate the material. Once I have met with the customer and understand their goal(s), I will devise individualized curriculum accordingly. For martial arts, I gauge the customer's prior experience and physical ability. Prior experience is not particularly important, but physical ability will dictate the kinds of techniques the customer can safely receive. For example, some older students I have worked with typically refrain from receiving harder take-downs.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    For reading and writing, I have a Bachelor's degree in English from CSU East Bay and a Master's degree in English Composition from San Francisco State University. For martial arts, I earned my Nidan (second degree black belt) under my instructor, Craig Kutil. I have a total of 11 years of training in my system.
