Your Best Defense Martial Art Center
1st Degree Black Belt
I started my martial arts career at the age of 12 in the Twinsburg Dodge After School Martial Art Program. After Sensei Tim’s Dodge program I started attending kids classes at The Silent Mind. Since that first day at Dodge my martial art training has been a very important part of my life. I became a junior division Black Belt at the age of 15. I’m now in college pursuing a career in law enforcement.
