Sensei Darrin Montgomery started karate in Aug. of 1982.  He received his black belt on May 10, 1988 in the style of Isshinryu Karate.  In the following years he became a 3rd degree black belt in the system.  He then trained in Aikido for a year and then moved onto Shorin-ryu which is the style he now teaches.  He received his black belt in Shorin-ryu on May 18, 1997 and recently was promoted to 2nd degree.  He is a student of Yamanni-ryu Bo-jitsu (Okinawan Kobudo) and studies Shindo Muso Ryu Jodo.  Sensei Montgomery not only teaches karate but the philosophy and history behind it.  He also attends several seminars a year in his quest for knowledge and loves to pass it on to anyone that wants to learn.
