Mr. Reeser began his interest in the Martial arts like many other during
the early 1970’s watching Bruce Lee and the Kung Fu series on T.V. He
began his training in Tae Kwon Do in 1978, during those years he
became efficient with high kicks and flexibility.
After six years he felt that his training was lacking in certain areas and he
began to look elsewhere to enhance his abilities. For two years he
began to train with friends in the arts of Wing Chun, Tai Chi Chuan, Jeet
Kune Do, and others to find where he fit among the many different styles
of Chinese, Korean and Japanese arts that have spread across North
It was not until Mr. Reeser found Shaolin Kempo Karate in 1985 that all
of the pieces of the puzzle started to come together. He found that the
utilization of both circular and linear hand strikes in multiple succession
along with equal use of both hands and feet was the most efficient and
practical way to defend himself in almost any given situation, plus the
combined structure of the original 5 Animals of Shaolin Kung Fu
( Leopard, Tiger, Snake, Dragon, Crane) and their fighting
characteristics that teach spirit, strength, balance, coordination,
gracefulness, precision, and flexibility not only increased his martial
capabilities but enhanced his overall health.
Mr. Reeser continues his training in Shaolin Kempo Karate, in which he
holds a 5th Degree Black Belt, and has since trained in other arts such as
Aikido, Kali, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and American Kenpo. In 2006 Mr. Reeser
completed his schooling as a certified personal trainer and aerobics
His overall goal is to make sure that each and every one of his student
can be, and will be offered the best martial arts training they can receive.
