“Faith is a state of mind that can be conditioned through self-discipline.
Faith will accomplish.” – Bruce Lee



There’s nothing like training with a small team of like-minded people. While training individually will do you wonders, training with a team of similarly motivated people will enable you to accomplish things you never dreamed possible. It’s what I like to call “Team Legacy.”

Team legacy is created when you, as a part of a team, “put-out” not just for yourself but for your team. As you put-out, you inspire your teammates to put-out; and as they put-out, they inspire you to do the same. Through such team-inspired synergy, each person as well as the entire team pushes each member to train at his (or her) limits. This is what enables each of you to extend your personal limits and experience lasting transformation.

In your training, create a team. Look for like-minded and similarly motivated people who will inspire you to become more than you are today. Train together, put-out for them, and be inspired as they do the same for you.

Personal (One-on-One) and Group tRAINING

I offer 60-, 90-, and 120-minute personal and group training sessions. I’m able to train you (and your team) in my home gym, at your home, at your place of work, or even at another space of your choosing. Regarding my fee schedule, which you can see below, I offer a sliding scale to accommodate the financial resources of a wide variety of individuals and groups. In addition, as has long been my custom, I train pastors and ministry leaders for free.

I recommend basing your annual income on your previous year’s gross income (as reported on your Federal 1040). I will not check this, as it really is none of my business; instead, I will simply trust you to inform me of which tier applies to you.

Also, please take note that the costs for personal and group training are exactly the same, irrespective of the number of participants.

(Annual Income: -$0-50,000):
(Annual Income – $50,001-75,000):
(Annual Income- $75,001-100,000):
(Annual Income – $100,001-150,000):

Instructor Training Certification

I offer one-on-one training for those specifically pursuing trainer certification in Jiin Senshi Do. The training lasts for a period of approximately three years and involves weekly one-on-one training sessions as well as weekend training intensives about every six months. If you desire personal or group training (and you live in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area of North Carolina), send me an email using the online CONTACT form below), and I’ll get back to you shortly. If you live out of the central NC area, I may still be able to accommodate you (especially, if you’re interested in a weekend intensive or group retreat).

Video Training (Coming Soon!)

The principal composite of web-based training programs offered by Temple Marital Arts Training is The Temple Elements Video Training Program. The Temple Elements is comprised of six progressive sets of training evolutions. Each set includes the presentation of anywhere from 6 to 8 evolutions intended to help you evolve as a person and as a warrior. A brief description of each set is provided below:
  • Set One: “Developing the Boxer Within.” Here we begin with the basics of striking…with the hands, the feet, and the knees.
  • Set Two: “An Introduction to Self-Defense and Life-Preservation.” Here we start to look a little at the psychology of violence. While some combatives are presented, the emphasis here is on first learning effective ways to best avoid, deescalate, or escape a violent situation.
  • Set Three: “Self-Defense II.” Here we get more into the meat and potatoes of engaging with a physical threat.
  • Set Four: “The Return of the Boxer.” Returning to the combat sport arena, here we begin to add more depth and intuitive responses to our emerging striking repertoire.
  • Set Five: “The Temple Warrior.” Mixing things up a bit, in Set Five we add take-downs and a few more strikes to begin the “rounding-out” process. Ultimately, we become not just a striker, but a warrior who, when necessary, is able to take things to the ground.
  • Set Six: “The Temple Warrior II.” In Set Six, we continue to “round-out” the warrior’s striking and ground-fighting abilities, while introducing some advanced elements in evasive maneuvering and counter-striking.

Training in The Temple Elements should be approached slowly, mindfully, and methodically. It’s recommended that each set be trained daily for at least four- to six-months (or longer!) before moving on to succeeding sets. The emphasis here is on the development of quality through highly focused quantity. Bruce Lee once famously said, “I don’t fear the man who’s practiced 10,000 techniques one time; I fear the man who’s practiced one technique 10,000 times.” Again, the focus should always be on quality by executing a high quantity of mindful repetitions of each technique. When moving on from one training set to another, it’s recommended that training in all previous sets be continued such that, by the time set six is completed (after two to three years of total training time), the practitioner (or Jiin Senshika) is training multiple times a week in all six sets. Approaching your training in this organic manner will yield the greatest benefit.

In the future, Temple Martial Arts Training may create other online training programs that provide additional (yet still simple) training in particular arenas of martial arts practice. Specifically, we envision providing additional training in boxing, leg strikes, elbow strikes, primal fighting, and women’s self-defense.
