My journey to Black Belt Excellence has taken me on a quest to raise awareness of the martial arts and self-defense, the importance of physical fitness and most importantly character development. This is why I established Snap Kick Martial Arts (SKMA) and the Martial Arts Leadership Association (MALA) in 2015.

My journey to Black Belt Excellence began in 2008, first as a parent and coach of my children and in 2011, my journey became more personal as I became a student. My journey continues now as a certified instructor.

Ryan Ngo

Lead Instructor
2nd Degree Black Belt

My journey to Black Belt Excellence goes back to when I was a quiet and shy kid, nervous, without a lot of confidence and having no idea what to expect from this new journey called the martial arts. However, the Snap Kick Martial Arts family welcomed me with open arms, love and care.

Kaleb Brown

Assistant Instructor
1st Degree Black Belt

My journey to Black Belt Excellence began at six years old. One Christmas, I received the Karate Kid movie (the remake), and I wanted to be just like the main character. I was running around the house jumping and chopping everything, so my parents decided to put me in karate.

Kevin Layola

Assistant Instructor
1st Degree Black Belt

I began my journey to Black Belt Excellence as a Little Samurai in 2011 when I was in Kindergarten. My parents wanted me to train in the martial arts so that I would be able to interact with people who shared the same interests as me as well as to build my confidence.

Chika Nwugo

Assistant Instructor
1st Degree Black Belt

My journey to Black Belt Excellence began simply because I wanted something different. My parents also believed that it might be a good way for me to tame my high levels of energy. On my very first day I realized very quickly that the martial arts were more about the development of my character than just kicking and punching.

Serafina Fish

Junior Assistant Instructor
1st Degree Black Belt

My journey to Black Belt Excellence began with an episode of Sponge Bob Square Pants called “Karate Choppers”, and it was after that episode that I decided to hang up my dance shoes and in 2013 put on my first karate uniform.
