In short he is: a martial artist, personal trainer, group fitness instructor, yoga enthusiast, entrepreneur, and a nerd at heart.
When James was in elementary school he had been picked on by other students. He was never the coolest kid nor was he ever given the chance to try. Frustrated, James needed an outlet.
After witnessing his first karate class he couldn’t help but beg his parents to sign him up. When they did, there was an immediate change. He had an outlet for all of the energy built up inside, and if his parents didn’t agree to sign him up who knows where
he would be today.
James has now been training karate for over 15 years and currently holds a 2nd degree black belt in Goju Ryu Karatedo. He has traveled to Okinawa, the birthplace of karate and has had the opportunity to train with instructors from around the world; including Sensei Eiki Kurashita, Sensei Ladislav Klementis, Sensei Iain Abernethy, and the Karate Nerd himself Jesse Enkamp.
After obtaining a diploma in Fitness and Health Promotions, James has made it his mission to create a martial arts and fitness centre that caters to his communities needs. In doing so he hopes to inspire his members to strive for their goals and become leaders within their own community!
