Introduction: I've been teaching martial arts for 11 years and have instructed nearly 1,000 students. I have a black belt in tangsoodo, have trained Muay Thai in Thailand, and have published a book on my original style and philosophy. I come to you for private lessons and bring all necessary equipment. I adapt to meet your goals, whether it's for personal fitness, self-defense, confidence, or entering tournaments. My business, Kyle's Karate, is a proven testament to clients, as I enter my 6th year of successful full-time martial arts instruction and client satisfaction.

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Private in-home martial arts sessions are highly specific. You should expect a higher price than visiting a local studio. However, the environment is much more convenient and you'll have 100% of the focus of the class. My by the hour sessions start at $150. Travel can affect that price. However, if you are looking or ongoing instruction, or multiple sessions a week, we can figure something out that works for both of us. As for discounts, I offer special discounting on equipment, gloves, uniforms, heavy bags, and even parties and events to all Thumbtack clients.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?When I start with a new client, the first thing I do is get to know them. I learn their goals, objectives, and ambitions, and steer the sessions towards that end. Because, if you only want to get fit, you don't need a karate uniform. And if you are interested in useful self-defense skills, we will focus specifically on those. Or, if you're interested in everything, we go from there. I work with you in your first session, orienting you to the movements, strikes, and equipment we'll be using for your goals. I know when to push you for excellence and when to ease you into things.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a blackbelt in tangsoodo. This is similar to taekwondo, which I have also trained and taught. I have taught for over a decade and have trained in all sorts of gyms and studios. I've done boxing, brazilian juijitsu, and even some hapkido. I've traveled to Japan, South Korea, and Thailand, where I was fortunate enough to learn Muay Thai first-hand. You can find my published book, American Karate: A New Style and Philosophy, on Amazon.
