“I started my training at 11 years old in a mixed style of Karate including Shotokan and Shorin-Ji Kenpo. My Shihan also had his 3rd Dan in TKD so we had alot of Korean inflence in our kicking style.
After a few years, an Eskrima mestre wandered into our dojo and began teaching classes as well so my Sensei incorporated some of the techniques into our format and style. Having had a very open minded teacher, I now have trained in several styles from around the world. This helps in the film industry as many different outlooks are needed for creativity to occur.”
