I originally started TaeKwon Do, at the age of 10, for self-defense and self-confidence. I earned my 1st Dan Black Belt and became a certified instructor through Kukiwon at the age of 16. Dedication to Martial Arts led me to managing and being Head Instructor of a branch martial arts school in northeast Ohio. Even tough TaeKwon Do is an excellent martial arts style, I realized that just one style limited my ability to fully protect myself. I wanted more! In 1996, I opened Ogura Martial Arts and incorporated the Jeet Kune Do concepts, Silat, Kali Eskrima, Muay Thai, Judo, and trapping into my training and yours. I have had the honor of learning from some of the top martial artists in the world.
I continue to study and expand my knowledge of Martial Arts and consider it a privilege to teach this unique art to you. I instruct students starting at age 4 and impose no age limit. I have experience in teaching students with A.D.D. and physically impaired students. I've also taught self-defense at K.S.U. in Ohio. I am a certified coach and vice-chairman for the Lake Erie Region A.A.U. Jr. Olympics. Ogura Martial Arts is a certified school and member of the O.A.M.A., A.A.U., and Weapons Connection Society.
