Professor Bryan Davies
(9th degree black belt)
Professor Bryan Davies has managed this local school for the past 25 years.
As a Master Instructor (King County Corrections) and 9th degree black belt in Kajukenbo, he is interested in the efficiency of available techniques learned over his 30 years in various Kajukenbo methods. Also, Professor has studied extensively the arts of Kenpo, Shito Ryu, Brazilian Ju jitsu, Wing Chun, JKD, stick fighting systems, years as Master Instructor for Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission, tutelage of Grand Master Bautista, and other sources.
He analyzes hours of videos by the many that pump them out. For those he likes, he tweaks, shows his students and tells them to ‘play with it, scratch it, sniff it, make it your own’. He watches as we develop the technique as our own and then further modifies it to correct any issues he sees. Even then, any technique is never a finished product. Evolution is his school’s forte and change is the one constant.
Sifu Dave Pasoquen
(5th degree black belt)
Growing up on the island of Okinawa Dave was exposed to the historically important and diverse elements of the island’s martial arts. Studying Judo and Shito Ryu stateside for some years whet his appetite for continuing in the arts. An extensive deployment for Desert Storm and successive tours in Iraq after that placed the study of martial arts on hold. Stateside and in law enforcement he met Professor Davies and has been in the dojo since 2006.
Sifu Justin Poe
(3rd degree black belt)
Sibak Justin is a master instructor in law enforcement tactics and with this school for about 10 years. A wrestler throughout high school and college, he later coached wrestling. Always polite and respectful he will apologize sincerely after crushing you. He is an immovable force, that knows how to move.
