I took yoga classes from Ken. He incorporated concentration and memory exercises into a well rounded, engaging, and appropriately rigorous hatha class. Ken demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the poses and a creative approach to developing awareness, strength, and flexibility both at the physical and mental levels. I felt strongly that he was paying attention to and addressing my individual practice and development. He makes a valuable contribution to the yoga community. Om Shanti.

Our main focus is on self defense. We won't waste your time, teaching you things like weapons and so forth that you can not even carry with you on the street. Learn how to escape from someone who has you on the ground, not make them "tap out". There is no "tap out" on the street. Weapon disarming, pressure point application, balance disruption, joint locks, and take downs are examples of what we do. If you're looking for trophies and medals, that's not us. We care about your family's safety.
