I’m a certified San Quan Dao – Chinese Boxing Black Belt and Krav Maga San Francisco Head Instructor & Founder. In 1999 I was given the opportunity to train in Krav Maga and be certified as an instructor. I had been training in Chinese Boxing style for about 9 years and teaching for about a year. After my first day of Krav Maga training, I realized the difference between self defense and martial arts. Learning a system that works for everyone all the time, no matter how small the defender is and how big the attacker is, made me want to teach everyone.
