Randy started his school with a strong desire to share Martial Arts and it's benefits with others. He continues to live and share a healthy lifestyle, and his passion for martial arts; enjoying helping others achieve their goals. He believes strongly in being a student for life, and constantly learning and growing.
Randy has traveled across the United States to train with some of the best martial artists/teachers/coaches, from Boston to San Diego and many places in between. He works diligently at his martial arts training, seeking the best for himself and his students.
Since early childhood Randy has been fascinated with Martial Arts. After his early machinations of becoming a highly skilled Ninja by age 10 were thwarted by his mother, he finally began his formal martial arts studies in Tae Kwon Do/Hapkido for a brief period while serving in the U.S. Army during the first Gulf War.
Having encountered Kung Fu while in the Army, Randy sought out an instructor a few years after the military. He has been studying Praying Mantis Boxing, Chinese Weapons, and Tai Chi since 1999.
Seeing the value in adding ground fighting techniques to Mantis Boxing, Randy has been training, studying, and competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu since 2011.
