Bob has over 40 years of martial arts experience in Bushidokan Karate/Judo/Jujitsu and Kickboxing. In the past, he trained under Bushidokan founder Grandmaster Jim Harrison and Steve Mackey, World Shootboxing champion. During that time, Bob earned the title of four-time National Champion in karate open tournament competition (including the Diamond Nationals).
Bob’s passion for training led him to open his own dojo in Gardner, Kansas. During those 20 years of operation, he trained eight national champions as well as amateur and professional kickboxers and boxers. He also worked with individuals from age 5 to age 70, police departments, military police, women’s self-defense, handicapped, and Family Focus for troubled children.
My personal mantra:
“Fortuna Fortis Adiuvat” (Fortune favors the Bold)
My training style is:
My passion for the art and how this has evolved over the years (kickboxing, shootboxing, MMA). This is my opportunity to share with those who also have that passion.
What gives me my fighting spirit:
My family. I’ve always been the protector in our clan. I vowed to not raise “victims.”
