He started training in the Genbu Kai Organization in 1991. Today he is a dedicated student, a Blackbelt holder in Karate-Do and Kobudo, and a teacher under Shihan Fumio Demura. During the 90’s he was an enthusiastic competitor in the Genbu-Kai, traveling across the U.S. from New York to California and many places in between. He is an East Coast Genbu-Kai champ many times over and in 1999 was awarded as a Triple crown champion by Fumio Demura in the Minnesota Championships. Today, he directs his focus towards teaching at his own dojo. He opened his Dojo in 2001 under the Genbu-Kai organization with his Sensei’s blessing.

His wisdom and patience helps guide us in the right direction.
