Founder / Program Director



I am very excited to bring Camp Toraguchi to life!  It’s always been my passion to bring martial arts to as many people as possible, and this is just one more avenue to do that.  I have been teaching professionally since 1999 which includes instruction to students as young as two and half.  I started training in 1986 and currently hold the rank as a godan (5th degree black belt) in goju karate.  My training experience also includes jiu jitsu, muay thai, weapons, and kung fu.  I have competed internationally and have at one point lived in China to better understand the history of the martial arts.

On a personal note, I’m a very active and athletic person by nature, and on top of martial arts, I love sports.  I play in a regular touch football league but I also enjoy a good movie.  Another passion of mine is travelling and always taking the path less beaten!

As an eternal optimist I’m always working to perfect everything that I’m involved in.  I will ensure that this is just another extension of that and I can’t wait to show you how special Camp Toraguchi can be!
