Bob first began training in the martial arts at age 14 under Master Young Chin Pak at Iowa State University in Ames, Iowa. He trained in Judo, Hapkido, and Taekwondo. It was then that his passion for martial arts was first ignited, and through others that it has grown. Recently, Bob’s life-long passion for martial art excellence lead him to Jiu-Jitsu, and the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu center in 2016.

Early in his Judo career, Bob competed in local and reginal Judo tournaments where he won several champion and grand champion titles. Bob has more than eight years of teaching experience as a Judo coach and Hapkido instructor. He feels privileged to have trained with a number of nationally and internationally known Judo players, and loves sharing his knowledge with others.

Bob is a martial artist, software developer, father of four, and husband to the woman of his dreams, Mary.
