His first dojo was opened in Whitneyville, ME in 1990. In 2000 he opened a new dojo in Hermon, ME. He then founded his current active dojo, Maine Traditional Karate in Orrington, ME, in 2003. Over the last couple decades he has trained many students with several promoting to the black belt ranks, each earning the title “Sempai”. Current Sempais help train the “color” belts (white, blue, green, brown) and several hold official instructor certifications.
