Comments on my Professional Development Seminars

“I really enjoyed working with some of the upper ranks. It’s nice to have a family-like atmosphere…. I also liked the fact that there are no stupid questions. You make everyone, no matter what rank, feel included. I also like your ability to tailor your message to all ranks.” R.F.

“You made everyone feel important. There were white belts and 5th blacks – all felt like they belonged and were welcome – I like that.” R.D

“I am getting a great education to complement and improve what I know. It is also allowing me to become better at kenpo, both physically and technically.

“Highly informative – excellent subject matter, outstanding instructors.”

“As always, I thoroughly enjoy the overall presentation, the content, the new and the review. I enjoyed the friendly, positive atmosphere as well as the energy of the seminar. The camaraderie amongst the participants was also very enjoyable.”

This helped open my mind to the new avenues of training and self-study, as well as turning on lights of understanding that I was having difficulty with.”

“Good stuff.”

“Please have more.”
