I’ve practiced various martial arts, off and on, since I was 14. I earned a purple belt in Shotokan karate as a kid. Earned a red belt in the ’90s with Curt Doyle’s North American Self Defense Institute, a red belt with Greg Broussard’s International Martial Arts Association, and am currently studying with Scott Ward at Houston Combat Arts. I’ve also studied with more traditional groups and styles, earning lower rankings in Taekwondo, Hapkido, and Judo, but the street styles are what really flip my switch.
