Mr Herman

I began training in Karate as a student at Syracuse University in 1991 and began teaching for my first instructor, Mr. Phil Benedict, in 1994. At Syracuse University I had the pleasure of training in many different styles including: Wing Chun Kung Fu, Pekiti Tirsia Kali, American Kickboxing, Aikido, and Tai Chi (in addition to my base system of Kenpo). After graduating in 1995 I moved to Boston, MA and while continuing my study of Kenpo I was also able to train in Jeet Kune Do Grappling, Doce Pares Eskrima and Muay Thai.
