Originally from Boston, MA, Dave began his martial arts journey in 2002, training in a traditional style of Okinawan karate called Uechi Ryu. Training in this style for 8 years, he earned his instructor certificate and rank of third degree black belt under the Okinawa Karate-do Association.
Dave’s passion for learning, as well as teaching, martial arts helps him (as well as his students) to become a better martial artist, both mentally, as well as physically. These are skills that are always being worked on in the form of techniques, scenarios, etc and are constantly evolving. Only through training, dedication and persistence can one move forward and evolve.
Dave is available for private lessons, corporate seminars and group lessons for various groups (ie sororities, women's groups, church groups, etc). Dave can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
