4th Degree Black Belt-American Karate, TKD, Shizen-Na Karate Brown Belt-Hojutsu-Ryu
4th Degree Black Belt
Began training in Hapkido for a short time. As an adult I began training under Grandmaster J. Pat Burleson in 2005 who in 2006 directed me to my primary lifelong teacher Grandmaster Richard M. Morris due to me being a police officer to take advantage of his trailblazing focus on police combatives. I currently hold a 4th Degree Black Belt under Grandmaster Morris in American Karate, TKD and Shizen-Na Karate. Recently Grandmaster Morris introduced me to Soke Jeff Hall who is the founder of Hojutsu-Ryu which is a weaponized/firearms based martial art. I earned my Brown Belt in Hojutsu-Ryu 2016 and hope to achieve Shodan soon. I am the father of a beautiful 9 year old girl named Emma who is a Blue Belt in American Karate and TKD under Grandmaster Curtis Brannan.
