Terry M Ham

Dojo-Cho (Head Instructor)

6th Degree, Red and White Belt

My name is Terry M Ham, I pride myself on being a family man first and foremost. Married to my beautiful wife Sonya, together we have four children and two grandchildren.

Introduced to the martial arts at the young age of 9, I realized then from my first experience that martial arts would be a part of my life forever.

I received my First Degree Black Belt 1996. Over the years, I have trained in various arts including:




Bujinkan Budo

Submission Grappling

Japanese Jujutsu (Various Styles)

When I first began to teach martial arts, the focus was on non-traditional applications. However, I soon came to the realization that traditional martial arts are not only effective when applied and taught properly but are in fact a very comprehensive and complete system, again not only physically but mentally and spiritually as well.

I continue to train and consider myself to be a student for life and I am always willing to learn from anyone who has something to share.

Favorite Quote

“Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”

30th president of US (1872 – 1933)
