*** Lesson Details ***
I am pretty easy going. I want you to feel comfortable and at ease, but we do need to focus and can have fun doing it. :)
I utilize various methods for each instrument, which is determined by the students learning style and ability; needs, so this can change as time goes on (not sticking to one particular publishers materials). I have done (and continue to do) extensive research into materials available for each instrument I teach, and supplement with my own, to utilize the best out there for "YOU" for the best possible progress. While ensuring an extremely well-rounded musical education, so you can progress at the best possible rate. Since each student's potential is different, each will progress differently. This is also determined by your dedication to daily practice (the more you practice, the quicker you will progress & the more accomplished you will become). This is a 'Team Effort'; I give the guidance and tools. You practice, utilize learn these tools, and off we go! The sky is the limit!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, jazz

About Sifu Jack
I was accepted in an all Chinese School in Chinatown Chicago in 1973 when it was very difficult for non-chinese students to study. My Sifu was Grand Master Wai Lun Chois who fought for 8 days out of 13 days in full contact in South East Asia Singapore to become the Grand Bare Knuckle Champion. I have taught over 15,000 Students since 1975.

Take lessons anytime and anywhere. If you fly into Vegas I am available to pick you up from the airport and go start training at your hotel, at a school or local park... Have a great day.

There are (unfortunately) many Martial Arts instructors who know just enough about self defense to get their students killed. Sifu jack is a TRUE instructor with years of experience and he possesses an exceptional reputation. The best thing I could say is " I'd have him watch my back and/or protect my loved ones anytime".

About jessica
Hello!
I am a NASM certified personal trainer. I have been in the fitness industry for over 5 years. During that time, I found my true love in the fitness world - boxing! After learning the sweet science, I realized boxing is so much more than what you see on TV. Boxing is empowering. It makes you think, move, and be confident in your craft. I have been training in boxing for 5 years now, sparring with opponents and perfecting my craft.
While learning boxing, I was able to meet some extremely talented professional boxers and learn from them. Now, I take what I have learned and train my clients with the same passion they have for the sport. I teach my clients the skills they need to protect themselves if need be. I also notice my clients gain confidence and are amazed at the inner strength they have.
Boxing is a skill you can learn anywh
ere! Whether it is in a gym with a heavy bag, one on one with mitts, or in the comfort of your own home with small weights, YOU can be a boxer!
