NEW UPDATES!

ABOUT MYSELF
I love target practice on the range and I graduated from the Sheriff's Office Citizens Academy and I learned so much in these classes. Some of the things I really loved was working with horses and K-9's. I learned the (The Law-Court both adult and juvenile-FBI-Secret Service-Bombs-Mounted Posse-Drugs-Diving-Self Defense for officers-Guns-Sniper-Swat Team-K-9. I love and respect people, animals, and nature, and learning new things. I do workshops and demos for organizations to teach self defense,to help make teenagers aware of alternatives to drug abuse and gang involvement. I also try to promote the arts by my actions and writings which have been published both in the newspaper and magazines. I am a Christian and believe in doing good actions and deeds.


I am 6th degree Black Belt in my own style and I hold rank from Master Henderson in two other styles in Goshin Jutsu Jujitsu and No Tora Ryu (AMERICAN TIGER STYLE) I am a 5th Degree Black Belt in Okinawan Kenpo Karate.
BEFORE YOU START YOUR STUDIES-

Make sure you know you have a good Sensei that uses the the right standards and fairness to all students. A Sensei that shows the love and respect for the arts as well as all students. A teacher that is willing to teach you with a great deal of knowledge and skill and patience. Some people at times have gotten into a class that was not as good as they thought it was. I did once myself. I however, learn from that experience. Check with people in your community about any school before you attend.
You want a teacher with a great deal of knowledge and one that uses fairness to all and does not show favorites. You also want one that stands by what they tell you and does not always change requirements on students. You do not want a teacher that refuses to teach people because of their age or any handicap.
I love teaching and sharing what I have learned with others. We have a family style center in a big school center. I teach at my dojo and have taught at YWCA. I teach eclectic(whatever works, use it). I feel that we can learn from all styles. I am against all violent acts unless there is no other way out of a bad situation.

BEFORE YOU STUDY ANY STYLE
You should research the history of the style. Okinawa Kenpo and Jutsu Jujitsu are some of the oldest and few authentic oriental arts taught in this area of Ohio. They are both world renown, and they both offer many useful techniques, kata, and weaponry for skill and self defense.

Martial arts promotes self esteem, and better mental and physical health, and balance. These are just a few benefits the arts offers a student.
I am presently in the martial arts magazine "Martial Arts Insider", a wonderful internationally circulated magazine, with a photo drill, article, and tribute to Prof. Wally Jay. My work also appears in Insights Into Martial Arts Magazine in New Zealand, with a photo drill and writings. Some of my drills and tips for martial artists are featured in Ron Sell's I Tip Book and DVD. I am currently working on several books.

Sensei Christine was back in Ohio and she helped run class this week. We all had a great time and she still has all of her great skills and her sparring was awesome as well as all of the students that attended that night. I am proud of all of you! Christine we miss you!
I have to share this! One of the most wonderful things I have ever done. It was awesome!!!Dolphin name is LESTER, he is about 35 years old, and words can not describe how wonderful this experience was.

SEMPAI JOE
Sempai is the best student I have ever had in my classes without doubt. His dedication to the arts is unbelievable as well as his skills. I am so proud and lucky to have him as a student. Joe's respect for the arts and his actions make him a true warrior and not just a martial artist. His skill level is unbelievable and I have never known such a humble student. In the near future he will become a Black Belt and I will be so proud to present this honor. He will have earned it. Joe has never been disrespectful in any way to anyone and all of the student think highly of him. He is a wonderful assistant and has grown in many ways in his studies in life as well as in the arts. In all of the time Joe has been with me he has only been eager to learn more and improve his skill level. He does kata, sparring, weapons, or other drills amazingly well. He also has obtained great speed and strength and stamina over the years. Sempai has a way of blending all of his skills so that he does not fall short in one or the other. All teachers should be so lucky to have a student like Sempai Joe. We also have some wonderful new students and they are also an honor to work with and I think they are doing a wonderful job also and will someday reach the same level with their dedication. At the current time I believe I have the best classes I have ever held while teaching. I am a teacher that is very proud of all of my students.



QUOTES
Teachers open the door, but you must enter by yourself-Chinese Proverb
If you can imagine it, you can achieve it: If you can dream it, you can become it. -William Arthur Ward
I have not failed 700 times, I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work -Thomas Edison

An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life. "A fight is going on inside me," he said to the boy. "It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil - he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego." He continued, "The other is good - he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you - and inside every other person, too." The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, "Which wolf will win?" The old Cherokee simply replied, "The one you feed."

I have enjoyed the many seminars that I have attended and learned many things. I have worked with some of the greatest great martial artist and admire them greatly for their skills.

SMALL CIRCLE JUJITSU TM INTERNATIONAL--PROFESSOR WALLY JAY
I HAVE ATTENDED 4 OF HIS WORKSHOPS AND WHAT A PLEASURE IT WAS..Prof. Jay is so humble and skilled. He became friends with Bruce Lee, and they both studied the arts together and each came up with a new style besides their original root style. Sometimes we talk about the arts over the phone. His son "LEON" is taking over when he retires. Pro. jay's wife is also a highly skilled artist.

KATHY LONG-I had a wonderful time and learned a great deal from her workshop. She has starred in movies and she holds many titles in the arts. She is awesome!

I WAS VERY HONORED TO WORK WITH SENSEI MICHAEL J. CAMPOS HIS SITE his seminars are held in New york at Colgate University every year. He is also one of the most skilled artist I have ever seen.
