Kenn, “I have a beautiful wife and two of the best kids ever, and another one on the way!!! I love teaching because I love serving others. I’ve spent most of my life serving others and there is no greater reward in my humble opinion. I’m convinced I’m alive to serve others. So, it is a pleasure to be able to teach young kids through the lens view of my life experiences. I think we all benefit from a different perspective. That’s what I try and bring to the table. I want to help the kids be better in life first, Jiu Jitsu second.”
Teaching Style: Kenn would describe his teaching style as high energy and disciplined.
