In addition to being a Speaker, Author, and Success Coach, I am also a professional martial arts teacher at my school in Centerville, Ohio.
Meng’s Martial Arts of Centerville & Mile High Karate
51 E. Spring Valley
Centerville, OH 45458
My school is a blending of two martial art families: Meng’s Martial Arts, led by Grand Master Benny Meng (who is also my primary teacher and Sifu) and Mile High Karate, led by Grand Master Stephen Oliver. Both of these Grand Masters are dedicated, life-long martial artists with very extensive backgrounds. Each of them has fostered and developed me as a martial artist and professional in different ways. The physical curriculum I teach comes primarily from Grand Master Benny Meng’s influence while the overall structure of the school, student service, and leadership support materials come from Grand Master Stephen Oliver’s influence.
To be successful in life, I truly believe it’s best to stand on the shoulders of giants. These two gentlemen are giants in the martial arts, each making an impact on a global scale. They set an incredibly high standard for a student to reach, but I believe very strongly in surrounding yourself with people that help you – by pulling and sometimes by pushing – to achieve your very best. It is my sincere desire that my school, my students, and my personal accomplishments make these two gentlemen proud.

I’ve worked with Police, Military, FBI, housewives and househusbands, children as young as 3, teens, adults, seniors as experienced in life at 90, handicapable and handicapped, nurses and doctors, the fit and overweight, the focused and the *squirrel* >.>, the confident and the shy, the business owner and employee… and in every situation I’ve helped them to create win-win situations in their own lives.
At the school, I work primarily in three formats: Regular Group Classes, Private Lessons, and Small Group Workshop.
One of my gifts is that I can teach and communicate anything I understand to any audience, but don’t take my word for it (that link takes you to my blog so you can read and see more of what I do, and how).
