    There is no better martial arts system than Kajukenbo Tum Pai. It is a wonderful blend of the internal and external arts. The privilege of contributing to, and witnessing the growth of a student. Nothing compares to the moment when I award a black belt and see the pride that radiates from the student.

    I think my work stands out because I care about spreading this system, and helping people really be able to defend themselves and their loved ones. I never saw myself as a teacher before, but now the best part is seeing someone finally getting a movement down or the understanding of why kicks in. Those are fantastic moments.
