My name is William. My martial arts training began when I was nine years old, my uncle was a Marine combat instructor who taught me judo/jiujitsu and karate until I turned eighteen. I attended two Taekwondo schools for a period of 2 years. My cousin gave me my Nunchaku training, that I have continued over twenty years. Six years of Air National Guard training in security/weapons and arrest control combined with Colorado Police Academy training in arrest control/self defense. Formal Aikido training and the study and practice of WingChun / Taichi for a combined three years.
My formal art training started in the Atlantic County Vocational Technical school where I studied and graduated from the Commercial Art Course in 1979. My experience from 17+ years as a sign painter/silk screen printer added to the training at the ITT Technical Institute in Visual Communications. My training included the Adobe Creative suite CS3 and CS4 as well as Dreamweaver, Flash and After Effects, Art history and graphic design.
Spanish is a second language for me having been married to my wife for 16 years, my wife is from Oaxaca Mexico. I am fluent in Mexican Spanish with excellent reading and writing skills.
