Bill and Patty Auvenshine first opened their school in October of 1997. From the start they have been active in the community, following their belief that a martial arts school has a responsibility to the community it serves.
Mr. Auvenshine is a bit of an oddity in martial arts. In December of 1995, Bill had an encounter with an unseen patch of ice and a power line pole that left him paralyzed from the waist down. Even that did not dissuade him from following through with his plans to open a dojang. Though Mr. Auvenshine teaches from a wheelchair, his students are of a high caliber.
Between Mr. Auvenshine’s ability to inspire and motivate, and Mrs. Auvenshine’s knowledge of fitness and instructing, from her 25 plus years of teaching P.E. and Health, they form a “dynamic duo” that is hard to beat.
