My Philosophy of Training and Teaching

"I've often felt that traditional martial arts today have been watered down in many schools, made less complex so that unknowing students would progress more quickly towards a black belt. This is done for the purpose of making more money, instead of helping the student acheive true mastery of themselves and their chosen martial art." ?

I specialize in helping ordinary folks take their first steps towards getting back in shape, or becoming fit for the first time ever. Most of my students don't intend to fight in the UFC, nor do they plan to compete in tournaments. They just want to improve their health and their life, whether through martial arts or through general fitness training, and I very much enjoy leading them along that path.

"I do believe in encouraging students to work up to their potential. I believe in being realistic in their training. And I believe in guiding my students along a path of challenge, discovery, and positive growth. There are no 1-year Black Belts in my school. Self-discovery is a process, and each student progresses at a different pace. My goal is to help each student according to their capabilities, and to make a change in their lives for the better. You can come to us as a complete non-athlete, and we'll help you become something more. "

"Whether you train at Jade Mountain briefly, or you turn out to be one of my long-term students, I promise that I will do everything within my ability to help you walk the path of Martial Arts, gain the rewards from your journey, and have fun along the way."
