5th Degree Black Belt

by Sensei Moncreaff on 09/22/11

A few days ago I returned from a 3 day trip to Syracuse, NY where I was tested for and promoted to 5th Degree Black Belt by Grandmasters Greg Silva and Diego Perez.  I received a beautiful certificate designed by Ed Parker Jr. whose father was the found of our martial arts system.  The test was very challenging and I feel a great sense of accomplishment for surviving it!  The graduation ceremony held the day after the test was amazing.  It was an honor to be a part of it.  You can view my demonstration from the graduation on the video page.  I performed Form 7 set to music.

It is a great honor to now be a Professor of the Art.  I will strive to be worthy of the title!

Dr. Nick Chamberlain Workshops Thursday June 9, 2011

by Sensei Moncreaff on 06/07/11

I am so excited to announce we will have a visit from Dr. Nick Chamberlain this Thursday, June 9th, 2011.  Dr. Chamberlain was my original martial arts teacher back when I started training at age 8.  He taught me until he moved to Texas when I was 18.  I recently began training with him again and this will be his second annual visit to our Academy.  He is an amazing teacher and martial artist and still inspires me today just like he did when I was 8 years old!

I hope you will all join us for his workshops.

For Karate Kids ages 7-12 the Workshop will be from 5:00-6:00 PM and the fee is $20.

For Teens and Adults the Workshop will be from 7:15-9:15 PM and the fee is $25.

There will be time after each workshop for autographs.

See you on the training floor!
