Master Charles Minter began his martial arts training in 1971. Mr. Minter has taught thousands of men, women, and children over the years and continues to inspire and influence his students in a positive way. Having competed in many tournaments during his 45 years in the martial arts, Mr. Minter has acquired a lot of knowledge that enables him to better teach students who wish to compete as well. 

Competition, however, is only one aspect of the martial arts. While Mr. Minter emphasizes the importance of learning from the experience offered by competition, proficiency in self-defense and forms leads one to become a well-rounded martial artist.
