In the mid 1990’s, Paul Garcia and I teamed up to do seminars at schools. At the time Paul was known as “Stingo” and was the middle weight fighter for Team Paul Mitchell. In our events we would travel to schools across the nation and he would do a sparring session followed by me doing a Kenpo self-defense seminar. We were constantly being asked about instructor training. To fill the need we began teaching Instructor Colleges to certify black belt instructors with Black Belt Schools International. Over the past 20 years, thousands of instructors in the US, Canada and the UK have graduated. These events are stronger than ever and we hold then on both coasts several times a year.
