THOMAS LOCKE

“Seek not to follow in the footsteps of the wise. 

Seek what they sought.”

-Matsuo Basho 松尾 芭蕉

My goal is to present a very well-rounded and practical method of learning and applying self-defense and fitness. First and foremost, I am a follower of Jesus Christ.  I believe that I must honor GOD in all I do and say.

My passion for life and martial arts springs from this belief.
