I believe in smaller groups, with more individual attention given to each student. Building strong relationships amongst the membership and clientele is the backbone of any program. I also consider it my job to earn your trust, it is not something that should be given without merit. I will work tirelessly to earn that trust, and I hope we can grow our sense of community, and work together to achieve your goals on the court and as a club.
