I started my martial arts career over 40 years ago and today I am a Hanshi and sixth dan under Shihan Vance of the Black Dragon Triad and the Okazaki Sensei Clan. I have been fortunate enough to have trained with world champions in Muay Thai, MMA, BJJ and kick boxing and have black belts or their equivalent in Okinawan Karate, Wing Chun and Iai-jitsu. I was introduced to Wing Chun through a very gifted JKD instructor at the age of 18. Not long after, I began formally training in Wing Chun and have trained in several lineages since. Having instructed combatives for law enforcement agencies, several branches of the military and numerous government affiliates.

Mit dem Kampfsport Kickboxen kam ich mit dem 13. Lebensjahr in Kontakt. Über die Jahre habe ich erfolgreich, an zahlreiche Turnieren und Meisterschaften teilgenommen. In den darauf folgenden Jahren durfte ich zahlreiche Kampfsport- und Selbstverteidigung arten kennengelernt und trainiert. 1998 bin ich auf Ving Tsun gestoßen. Das Ving Tsun nach Wong Shun Leung hat in seiner Denk und Herangehensweise überwältigte Ansätze. Endschlossen das System tiefgründiger zu erlernen folgten zahlreiche harte jedoch tolle Trainingsjahre. Heute, mit über 30 Jahren Kampfsport und Kampfkunst Erfahrung ist es für mich eine tolle Berufung unterrichten zu dürfen.
