Instructors

Our certified black belt instructors have all progressed through the ranks at one of our schools. They have been carefully chosen and trained to instruct children, teenagers and adults. Most started as a ninja-tot and have been training for over a decade. Our instructors are held to the highest standards and recognize the needs of a four year old differ than those of a sixty year old. Martial arts have become a lifestyle for our instructors. Leading by example, being a positive role model, and offering individualized training are distinguishing traits of our staff. They are energetic, motivating, empathetic and knowledgeable. Each of our instructors are constantly upgrading and learning the newest and most effective methods of teaching children, teenagers and adults. They too are students and they show courtesy and respect to an adult or a ninja-tot, as each is entitled to be treated fairly and professionally. All of our instructors are taught to be proactive in recognizing and addressing any concerns from parents or students. You will be greeted with a smile and made to feel like you belong to our martial arts family.

Surround yourself with good people and good things will happen.
