I started training with Master Bogdanski and Master Duethorn in 2010 after watching my son Keenan training under them. I am currently a second-degree black belt at Quest.
I began helping with teaching shortly after earning my first-degree black belt 2 years ago. My son has also earned his first-degree black belt and is currently training for his second. Training at Quest has been a true pleasure for me. I enjoy the great variety of disciplines we explore from the sparring to empty hand forms to weapons form and various weapons training such as kali and the staff. The classes are always enjoyable and are a great way to develop conditioning while learning useful life skills. Master Bogdanski and Master Duethorn have a tremendous wealth and breadth of knowledge which they share eagerly.
Master Bogdanski and Master Duethorn are truly dedicated not only to their training, but also to refining their craft of teaching and making their student's experience fulfilling. They work just as hard passing their knowledge onto their instructors. They set an excellent example regarding work ethic that is evident from the very beginning of one's training with them.
Prior to training at Quest Martial Arts, I was an electrical engineer doing circuit design and embedded systems programming. I stopped to help take care of my 2 kids and have been involved in various extra curriculars with them from Boy Scouts to Little League and hockey.
