Qualifies for five star but fall short because the tutorial lacks practice exercises to reinforce the principles learned. A lot was passed down though. Good Job!

Outside of teaching I am married and have three daughters. I used to play a lot of sports but liked softball, basketball, and ice hockey best. Ever since I saw my first Bruce Lee movie I have been a martial arts fan and practitioner, although I have never really been able to devote myself to it as I would like. If I had the chance, I would take up judo or BJJ.
That's pretty much all about me. I take pride in my classes. My students learn everything they should plus more. I sincerely hope you join and enjoy one. Thank You.
