Sensei Roger's Philosophy on Martial Arts Training

Island Martial Arts is committed to providing the highest quality martial arts instruction and training, in a friendly, positive atmosphere. I have trained for a lifetime in order to guide you through your training.

I believe that people of all ages, with or without previous martial arts experience, can learn to defend themselves, get a great workout, have fun, and ultimately improve as individuals. That is our shared goal. Don't be concerned if you are not super athletic; simply progress towards your potential.

My dojo and training style is not oriented toward tournaments or competition -- the only person you have to compete with is yourself.

I offer separate classes for adults and children, and teach specific course material for specific age groups. This way, everyone gets the most benefit from the instruction. I believe that the goal of martial arts is ultimately to develop the individual to a higher level.

To this end, I encourage you to work hard, absorb and enjoy your training, and continue to develop along your path.
