Each person finds their own reason for training in the Martial Arts.  I am certainly no different.

Having been bullied and beaten-up many times in my youth, a dangerous night out with friends reinforced what I had known for many years... I needed to learn how to defend myself, even if only for piece of mind.

After extensive research and visits to many Martial Art schools in the area, I finally found my way to the Sensokan Dojo.

Upon entering, I knew I was somewhere different.  This room I had entered was like a portal back to what feudal Japan could have been like.  Within a few minutes class had begun and I proceeded to watch the most intense Martial Arts training I had ever seen in my life.  My heart was pounding out of my chest and I was extremely intimidated by what I was seeing, but I knew this was what I had been looking for, and I could not believe it actually existed.


I joined the Sensokan Dojo and began my training in Senso-Ryu Aiki-Jujutsu under the supervision of Ted Hanulak Shihan in 2003.

Senso-Ryu Aiki-Jujutsu is taught in the traditional style.  Hanulak Shihan has given only a handful Menkyo Shoden (black belt) licenses in over 25 years of teaching due to the traditional nature in which the art is taught.  I am honored to have earned one.


I attained my Menkyo Shoden license in Senso-Ryu Aiki-Jujutsu in 2007. I was approved for assistant instructor status in 2009, full instructor status in 2012, and was granted the Menkyo Chuden (middle transmission) license in 2018.

I teach Kenjutsu out of my personal residence and continue to teach and train in Aiki-Jujutsu at the Sensokan Dojo.
