Owner / Main Instructor
Robert started his Martial Arts training early in life. Instructing came easily to him in his late teens and then by 1995, Robert opened up his own school and developed a unique martial arts sports program for all ages.
Family and the Christian faith are most important to Robert and his wife, who are proud parents of a son and daughter. Family values are not only very important in his personal life but in his work at RDW. He holds himself to a high standard of integrity, ethics, good health and fitness.
Robert has a unique quality about him that makes RDW feel like home. His compassion for people, sense of humor, playful demeanor, endless knowledge of skills, patience and a sense of just being a ‘big kid’ himself….he is insanely popular with the younger children! His desire for wanting to help individuals leads him to try and instill self-confidence and self-esteem in his young students through training in martial arts, or simply by being there for them.
