Casey's story

I started learning martial arts in 1996, and it drastically affected my life. As I continued training, I greatly grew in self-esteem, discipline, and respect. I've been teaching martial arts for 21 years now and have been in charge of an entire YMCA program for 15 of those years. I feel incredibly fortunate to have been able to transfer these values to thousands of students over the span of my career. I am dedicated to continuing to do so by starting a martial arts school of my own. I call my school Thrive Martial Arts because "thriving" is ultimately what I want for my students. I work to challenge them and help them succeed in order to produce positive behaviors that will last a lifetime. I not only find it extremely important to teach students how to get the most out of their lives, but I also enjoy it thoroughly!
