Sifu Robert Brown has enjoyed practicing martial arts for 40 years, and owning a school for 20 years.
Born with cerebral palsy and dyslexia, he walked into his first dojo in leg braces with low self confidence, anger issues, and physical challenges. With training, the leg braces were gone, and he developed the physical flexiblity and strength of an average teenager. And he walked into a far better future than was predicted for him.
Through the study of martial arts, Sifu Brown overcame the physical challenges he had since birth. He also overcame the mental and emotional challenges that came with them. Martial arts changed his life, and opened the doors to an amazing future.
The only thing Sifu wants is to share the tremendous benefits of martial arts with as many people as he can.
If you want to give Sifu something to help him celebrate this double anniversary, a new student is the most priceless, valued and cherished gift that Sifu could ask for.
