Maximizing My Students’ Potential
I began studying with Shihan Wenneberg at the tender age of 6. When I was 9, I was assisting and teaching classes at AMAA. I grew up at AMAA, and I never left. Why would I’m Looking back, as a teenager I would have gotten into a lot of trouble without martial arts and AMAA in my life. As an adult, I am reminded every day of the lifelong benefits martial arts has given me. My sense of self-worth, humility, and belonging are directly tied to lessons I have learned from my AMAA family.
Given all of the challenges in the world today, I know that if more people chose to devote themselves to martial arts training and discipline, the world would be a better place.
My wife Megan and I manage AMAA’s Placentia Campus. We are honored to help both children and adults maximize their potential. My personal goal is to help as many people as possible achieve the rank of Black Belt because I know that achieving this rank is often directly tied to a person becoming all they can be in every aspect of their life.
