From Roger

I love to find the connections between both martial arts, Kali and Karate, and use experiences from both paths of training to find better ways to teach people the material when they can not grasp a concept. I like to disassemble the "solid" foundational work found in karate and similar martial arts and like replacing it with the more "fluid" motions found in Kali as needed to help people transition.
