I came to this location for a self defense class and found that this location was no longer participating in the groupon I had purchased. Even after I had insisted it was fine and not a big deal Master Stanley Hill still took it upon himself to help me and show me some self defense moves anyways. I felt very welcome there and I learned a lot in just the one session. I would go again :)

1964 at age 12. He received his Black Belt at the age of 16
