Awesome!  You are entered into our Tactical Flashlight Giveaway!  Winner will be announced via email soon.  Stay Tuned. 

Congratulations on taking that all Important Courageous First Step!  We are so glad you decided to reach out.

Are YOU as Excited as We Are?  I’m STOKED.  There is nothing I love more than the prospect of helping someone start their own personal journey into the awesome world of Martial Arts just like I did 35 years ago.

How I Got Here

All those years ago, I never imagined I would get this far.  My goal of becoming a Black Belt seemed light years away and I felt like I would never get there.  But I persevered.  I ground out the hard work.  I invested time, money, blood, sweat and tears.  I traveled halfway around the world to train directly with the “source” in Japan.  Then I did it again.  And again.  And again.  And again.  And I did it while managing a full time career and raising a family (4 crazy kids!).  Amazing.  Sometimes Life gets in the way.  Another business trip.  Schedule conflicts.  Kid’s sporting events, practices and summer camps.  I know, I’ve been there.   There was always something competing for my time.  But if I could do it, so can you. 

I got my 1st Degree Blackbelt.  Then my second, my third, my fourth.  I started my own full time Dojo with a lifelong friend here in Pittsburgh.  I traveled all the way to Japan to take my 5th Degree Blackbelt Test (one of the most incredible experiences of my life).    I just kept grinding it out, year after year after year.  My 6th, my 7th, my 8th, my 9th.  Then at a special event I recieved 5 personal recommendations for me to be granted my JuDan 10th Degree Blackbelt.  Not going to lie – I cried.  2 and a half DECADES+ of dedication and hard work in this art and here it was.  A level I never dreamed of seeing all those years ago.

Now, I am one of only a small number of Dai Shihan Senior Instructors on the entire planet.  And I want to give back. 

I keep my Dojo small on purpose, so each and every student gets everything myself and my senior instructors can offer them.   (I only teach adults,  No “kiddie karate daycare” in my school)

I want YOU to consider joining us.  Not everybody gets accepted.  Only a select few are admitted to my Dojo.  Why?  Because I want students who give as good as they get.  What I ask for is your earnest commitment to train hard and be an integral part of our BUYU (“martial family”).

So many mentors helped me along my path, now it is my turn to help others just like you.

I am going to show you how to be Fearless in Your Actions and how to Carry Yourself with Poise and Grace in every interaction.  

In my martial arts studies I found out something profound along the way.  The last 3 decades + of studying the martial arts have given me a healthy lifestyle to be sure, but they have given me oh so much more!  The martial arts have given me a “Command Presence”.  What do I mean by that?  It is that Poise and unflappable Sense of Presence that is instantly recognizable whenever you walk into a room.  It is a feeling of Being Calm Under Stress and Strength Under Pressure.  Centered.  Balanced.   Isn’t that what you want for yourself?

This is the feeling of Fudoshin 不動心.   or “Immovable Heart”. 

Fudo Shin Kanji

I can not stress this enough – the Confidence I earned from studying martial arts, the Results Oriented Mindset it created and how I carried myself in the Dojo was mirrored in every aspect of my life!

This is about being the Best Version of Yourself you can be.  It is about Polishing and Honing who you are, and it is all about How This Translates to every facet of your life!  The study of Martial Arts is the only way I know how to instill this kind of presence into oneself.  

You took that incredible first step, now take the next one.  Come see us and let’s have a great conversation about where you want to go next in your life.  You won’t regret it!  

I am going to ADD a SECOND BONUS just for your time and consideration.  If you sign up as an active student, I am going to GIVE you my 120 page Black Belt Student Manual for FREE.  It took me YEARS to write and re-write this book.  It is chock full of color images, reference charts and descriptions of every single technique from White Belt all the way up to 1st Degree Black Belt.    Normally I charge $99.00 for this.  Sign up, and it is yours for FREE.

Come see us.  Join our Dojo Family and Change Your Life.
