Phase One Instructor
I started taking Karate at a fairly young age in the small town of Linton Indiana. I took Karate for a few years and really enjoyed the traditions that came along with it. I ended up having to take a break from training because the school shut down. After years of training from books and VHS tapes in garages and backyards I found my passion in Jeet Kune Do. I then started going to a Jun Fan Gung Fu class a couple time a week under Sifu Rob Lee. I trained with Sifu Rob for a few years until I joined the Army as an Infantryman. After the Army my training was limited to seminars for a couple of years. I then Started taking Karate under Master Greg Burcham with my son. As time passed Master Greg Burcham and myself became pretty good friends. In 2017 I was promoted to 1st Dan in Shorin Te Kenpo under Master Burcham and we started a school together where we now teach Shorin Te Kenpo and Siekukan Karate. I also teach Gung fu with the curriculum and guidance from Sifu Rob.
I earned my Phase 1 Instructor in February 2019.
