Sensei Jose Marti

Jose Marti has been committed to the martial arts for nearly his entire life. Sensei Marti first burst onto the east coast martial arts scene as a Kung Fu prodigy before he was 10 years old... thirty-five years later he has achieved a pristine reputation as one of the country's foremost practitioners and teachers of Shotokan Karate – with the development of character being his chief goal and generosity of spirit being his guiding principle.

While Sensei Marti's top line combination of accreditations and belt accomplishments are certainly impressive:

5th Degree Black Belt Shorin Ryu Karate Do (5th Dan)
4th Degree Black Belt in Shotokan Karate (4th Dan)
4th Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do
3rd Degree Black Belt in Yamanni Ryu Traditional Okinawan Weapons
Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
It is Sensei Marti's commitment to constant training, his perpetual-student mindset that both gives him so much empathy for his students and sets him apart as an inspired martial arts master-teacher.

Sensei Marti sees each individual student as a unique potential martial artist. Jose instills the idea of measuring one's progress solely within a personal context and while Sensei will always ask you to work your hardest to be the best you can be, he will never compare you to another student.
