8th Degree Black Belt
Master Jenkins started his training in the martial arts over 30 years ago. He has been in Kempo for almost all of his martial arts career and received his 6th degree black belt in 2003 under the great Professor Kimo. Master Jenkins was promoted to 7th degree black belt in 2014 by Grand Master Don Rodrigues. Also Master Jenkins was just recently promoted to 8th degree black belt by Grand Master Tony Cogliandro under American Karate International.
Master Jenkins served in the U.S. Army in addition to his martial arts training.
Master Jenkins was inducted in the Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2006 for Kempo Master of the Year. Master Jenkins has brought a new way to Kempo training. He believes that hard-core is sometimes too intimidating, so he makes it fun for all ages but keeps the tradition alive. Master Jenkins has worked with some great Masters in his time, including Master Cheech Luzzi, Master Fred Villari, Master Tom Ingargiola and Grand Master Tony Cogliandro.
1st Degree Black Belt
I've been an assistant instructor at Black Dragon’s Martial Arts Academy for almost 4 years now. I started my journey in martial arts over 6 years ago and I was promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt in January 2024. Martial arts has become a big part of my life, in and out of the dojo, teaching me valuable life skills like discipline and responsibility that translate into daily life. Through teaching, I want to help change the lives of every person that comes into the dojo in the same way that my life was changed. With the opportunity that I am given I want to put the most effort into every child and adult, and teach them to defend themselves.
My goal with martial arts is to become an instructor of a dojo and to learn as much as possible with respect to Shaolin Kempo as well as other styles of martial arts. Through this I’ll be able to share my knowledge and pass the things I learned down to the people that come in to learn.
