Hey there. My name is William H. I have been studying martial arts for about 14 years. Most importantly I do not represent any school, style, or person. I'm an instructor, catalyst, and advocate. I do not claim to be a master. Whether you are experienced or not I can without a doubt augment your abilities. I have taught for about nine years. I teach components of various styles. Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Wing Chun, Jujutsu, Western Boxing, and more. I started at Miller's Martial Arts Academy in Kirkland, WA and from a former Israeli Defense Force solider. Additionally, Doug Carducci and other teachers from Sasori Academy MMA. Eastside Martial Arts. Chris Hartman and Armando Diaz; both Muay Thai ring fighters. My father, a practitioner of 40 years of Kyokushinkai Karate and other practices. Tyler king, an independent teacher. James Saeger, former teacher at Z-Ultimate Self Defense Studios. I have also trained at many different schools all around the Northwest.

Whether you are looking for exercise or self defense training I could cover either and more. Generally effective long lasting self defense capabilities are synonymous with intense exercise and effort. Peace and safety are very important to me. Drills are good and we do them but real fights are usually random and chaotic. I offer training to be better prepared for those scenarios.
