I am a 3rd degree black belt with the Kobukan Karate Federation. I practice and teach Okinawan Matsumura Seito Shorin Ryu karate and kobudo weaponry. I have been involved in martial arts for over 15 years. My studies have included karate, ninjutsu, and Choy li fut kung fu. I am dedicated to empowering people, through martial arts training. Giving people the skills to help them protect themselves, while also passing on an art that has given so much to me, is my passion. My teaching style is is focused on the individual, while being very comprehensive. There is more to karate than learning the moves and techniques. There is an entire history and culture to explore.

We had Michael demonstrate his karate techniques for my remote work team. He did an excellent job teaching with a handful of people on the screen, He also talked about other safety and self defense tips. Many people commented that he was excellent and he was very informed on answering questions and joking along the way as well. We plan to use Michael again for more team building activities in the future.
Greatest teacher, patient understanding, wonderful with kids great lessons.
Sensei Parker is so patient and good-natured with my two hyper boys (5 and 7). He humors their silly observations, gently redirects back to the subject, and reinforces their interest and enthusiasm in karate. Highly recommend!
