Master Alan White
“Martial Arts is really a personal journey. As an instructor I can share techniques and I can share stories. But a big part of what I get to do is help students discover how much they are capable of. I get to be there supporting them on this journey of accomplishment. My students make me proud of them every single day and it is so rewarding.” ~ Master Alan
