(Chris) has been involved in Martial Arts for over 30 years.
He started Judo
lessons at age 9 and fell in love with Martial Arts. At age
15, when he was living in Barstow, California, a YMCA
opened up and offered a class in Karate Kung Fu. The
Instructor was Henry Gutierrez who became a mentor to
Chris. The style of this type of martial arts is a mix of Kenpo
Karate, Sil Lum and Hung Gar Kung Fu.
Chris was hooked! He recieved his black belt 5 years
later. Chris has been teaching ever since, but continues with
his own studies also. He is now learning Tai
Chi with Master instructor James Ibrao.
