He's very good at what he teaches. Very well networked with others across the US and internationally, so you can trust that you will receive the very best training for the type of world that we live in today. Unlike some I have met in the martial training industry, he neither makes you feel inferior or treats you like a child, things that I have experienced with others. Not content with what he's already learned, he's always seeking out and open to what others are teaching, adapting that to his own teaching style where compatible. His web site is chocked full of insightful knowledge and has some audio interviews from martial art masters across the spectrum of arts taught and practiced. Obviously, only you can decide how compatible you feel with any instructor, but he does his best as I have noted, to make you feel comfortable with his instructional style along with understanding your individual training needs and abilities. Don't just take my word for it, contact him to check it out. I don't think you'll be at all disappointed in what you can learn and achieve.
