Martial Arts

Training Without A Weapon

I am a big fan of the martial arts; the poetry of movement and the mental stimulation.  When I was much younger, I also enjoyed the way my teachers made me laugh by effortlessly throwing me to the ground. (Now it just stings.)  I do not teach martial arts myself but I wanted to showcase a school with a lot to offer.  This school teaches several different styles of martial arts so you should find some very good training.  Enjoy!


I want to thank John Young and Melvin Armstrong (Five Family Five Animal Southern Shaolin Kung Fu) for their friendship, understanding and for not only teaching me how to learn but teaching me how to survive long enough to learn.  I also want to thank Brad Tyrey (Bagua Zhang, Hsing I Chuan, Tai Chi Chuan) for his friendship and for showing me a lot of the truth in Chinese martial arts.
