Your Martial Arts Sensei – Ryan Dean
Martial Arts classes at the Dojo are taught by Master Ryan Dean, a 8th degree black belt. He is one of the highest ranked Uechi-Ryu Karate practitioners in the United States. Additionally, he has studied Jujutsu and Judo for over 20 years and is continually working to improve his techniques and teaching methods.
“When I started martial arts training as a teenager, I wanted to learn how to fight and be a”tough guy”. However, what I learned from over 25 years of martial arts training is that being the best fighter pales in comparison to everything else I have gained from my training.
As a young, cocky teenager I had a short fuse and a lot to learn. I was lucky to have some true karate masters to serve as my role models. The skill of their techniques was and still is amazing, yet they carry themselves without a drop of arrogance.
My teachers taught me that having the ability to hurt someone carries with it a great responsibility never to be misused. Self defense should only be used as a last resort when there are no other options. I personally had to work on my own self-control and how to use my skills to help others.
Martial Arts have taught me how to think before I act, pay attention to detail, and finish what I start. I strongly urge parents to explore martial arts training for their children!”
