Paul Panzarella / Instructor


Paul has been involved Martial Arts training for over 30 years. He was introduced to the styles of TaeKwon-Do, Hapki-Do, and Kenpo in the U.S. Army. After leaving the Army, he continued his training until he had earned black belts in TaeKwon-Do and Hapki-Do.  While earning his degrees, he was also assisting senior instructors.  During this period, he noticed that some of the instructors didn't teach with a lot of warmth and personal attention.  This led Paul to become disenchanted with traditional schools, and he decided to develop his own "unconventional" program.

To this day, his teaching methods are uncommon.  He believes in and gives all students personal attention. He incorporates "realistic scenarios" and practical "common sense" techniques in the program. Learning a mixture of styles gives the student an "arsenal to choose from" in a defense/self defense situation.
