He has advanced training in full contact fighting, grappling, Aikido, escrima, nunchuckas, bo staff and sword. He continues to find ways to inspire and support the local community. He holds multiple champion belts in competitive breaking and runs tournaments across the nation to advance the sport.

Miss Reed has been training in martial arts for over 20 years, starting her training under Master Kanabay at the age of 6.

You MUST set Zoom user to students' name and ID number. If your user name is generic (i.e. "iPad or "Joe's Computer") or someone else's name, you will not be admitted for class. This is due to a high incidence of trolling on Zoom.
Each class has a waiting room, from which an instructor needs to let you into the class. The instructors will manually enter your ID to the attendance software before letting you in. Please be patient. You will be locked out of class if you log in late (just like with regular classes) so we will open up the waiting room 5–10 minutes before class start time and lock the class once we get started (approx. 6 minutes later).
