How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it? "My motivation to start this business is threefold.

"For starters, I was born and raised here. It has been my dream to return to my roots and share one of my passions with area residents.


"Next, I am eager to share our arts. It's unlikley that many people have ever heard of Kali and Silat.

"Lastly, I truly believe that martial arts are the perfect vehicle to foster serious personal growth and development; and that's what life is all about."
