Mr. William Canonizado was born in the Philippines with Japanese/Filipino and Spanish decent.  While growing up in Manila, he took an interest in mastering the art of Tae Kwon Do and obtained his Black Belt at age 16.   He later trained with Philippine Tae Kwon Do Association in Manila and traveled to Korea and competed in a South East Asian competition.

Mr. William moved to the United States at the age of 18.  He then went to college and obtained a Pre-Med degree in New York.  Due to personal family reasons, he was unable to finish med school; however, finished his Nursing Degree.  Mr. William is currently a licensed Critical Care RN with extensive experience in Nutrition and Physical Training.

Mr. William decided to open up his Martial Arts school when his son, Marc, started competing nationally.  He wanted Marc to have a place where he can train and teach other martial artists who want to excel, especially in competition.

Mr. William has trained some of the well-known National and World Champion Martial Artists in the United States.  To name a few, he has trained: Marc Canonizado, Sammy Vasques, Tiffany Larsen, Steven So and World Champions Haley Glass and Chase Chavez.  Perhaps you, or your children, are next on the list!

Mr. Hakim Walker – Head Instructor & Manager

Mr. Hakim Walker has been training in martial arts for over 35 years. I love the benefits of what I’m doing. It’s not about the kicking and punching as it is the life skills that you learn along with the understanding of how to be someone that can be a positive role model. I’ve acquired two black belts and 9 world titles over the course of my career. I enjoy sharing my experience with those who appreciate the passion and insight that I bring with all my years of experience. I have over 25 years teaching experience. I enjoy working with kids and adults of all ages and backgrounds. I bring to the table a very easy going and approachable skill set that allows me to work with each child’s individual ability and identify with each child so that I can get them to perform at the highest level and be the best they can be for themselves. I will do my best to ensure that I provide a good example for those I work with and help them to grow and become leaders in society.
