Mike’s first experience in the Martial Arts was at a YMCA Judo class at the age of 7. Later, he re-discovered interest as a teenager (16-19 yrs old) learning some Aikido as well as basic self defense techniques and fighting skills. Mike first met Brian Lee in 1990 and a year or two later practiced briefly with Brian. He joined the Dragon Well school shortly after it opened in 2006 and practices Tai Chi, Hsing-I, Bagua as well as Tae Kwon Do. He spent two years instructing Kid’s Kung Fu classes and occasionally assists Brian and Bley with classes and workshops.
