I’ve been a martial arts student of the Tracy’s Karate system of Kenpo Jujitsu since 2011, and met Jim at that point through group karate classes he offered at the Forest Park Studio. His instruction style of catering lessons to individual needs, with expert understanding of the system, while consistently coming across as both knowledgeable and trustworthy had me appreciating him as an instructor from day 1. In 2013 I moved all of my individual lessons to him as my main instructor, and I continue to appreciate the vast majority of my group lessons at his studio. I would highly recommend him for anyone seeking a martial arts instructor, close combat lessons / solutions, or concealed carry classes. —Katrine Austin
WOMEN’S SELF DEFENSE
Jim is a dedicated, well informed and patient instructor. He interacts with all clients to be certain they are receiving the instruction they expected. From the retired teacher, his grade is A! —Elaine Poynter
It was fantastic! Learned so much, and really enjoyed the practical application part. –Sarah Tomen-Cairl
Thanks for a great class Jim. You were very informative and made us all feel very comfortable. Like you said, each woman that took this class took it for a reason, and I feel certain that we all walked away today feeling a little more assertive and confident in our surroundings. I will definitely recommend your class to a friend! Thanks again for following your dream to help others. –Joellen Waddle
Jim is an excellent teacher with more knowledge about self defense than I could ever imagine!
CONCEALED CARRY WEAPONS
I attended one of Jim’s twelve hour Close Combat Solutions courses last weekend. As a teacher myself, I was highly impressed with the professionalism and knowledge that I experienced through his interpretation of the NRA guidelines. The instruction and passion from Jim was infectious and kept me on the edge of my seat. I would highly recommend his courses to anyone who wishes to excel in firearms and self-protection/safety issues.–Todd Ryotoshi Norcross Owner/ SanDan – Sr. Budo Instructor The Dojo – Martial Arts School Mason, Ohio
