Sifu Leroy Alsup has been involved in martial arts for over 40 years with over 30 years of experience in Tai Chi. he studied under the direction of Abraham Lu, a renowned Tai Chi grandmaster in the traditional Yang style Tai Chi hand and sword forms. Additional learning was completed under Yang Jun, a world-renowned grandmaster instructor, and the 5th descendant of yang style Taijiquan. Leroy has hosted Yang Jun for instructional/informational seminars to further his knowledge and studies as well as those of his students. His knowledge and understanding of the art has resulted in his reputation as an accomplished Yang-style Tai Chi teacher and his selection to judge several international tournaments.

Justin aka Silent Slayer

Hi, my name is Justin Lewis, I am a personal trainer who specializes in Athletic training, weight loss, and Kickboxing. I currently am a martial artist of 10 years who fights in MMA and kickboxing and I have an elite-level hockey goalie background of 19 years. Training with NHL, Semi-Pro, and NCAA goaltending coaches, I can provide high-level training to help you become a better athlete and reach whichever other goals are desired. Martial Arts also helped evolve my drive, hard work ethic, and respectful morals which I hope can inspire others to reach their fullest potential and beyond.

Courtnie aka The Regal


Hey everyone! My name is Courtnie and I focus on weight loss and muscle building during my training sessions. I love training others because I enjoy watching milestones be passed and helping others feel more confident and happy! Fitness doesn’t have to be scary! It can be so fun and rewarding at the same time and that is one of my goals during every training!

Theo aka Majestic Theo

I have been training under SIFU Niko for almost 3 years now. My intention was to gain the necessary skills, a way of fighting, that is complementary to my stature. The more I learned about martial art, the more I learned about myself. Soon after, I realized the practice became second nature throughout my daily life and that Tai Chi is more than a fighting technique. I believe it's best described as Theodore Roosevelt's, "Speak softly and carry a big stick". My mind and spirit are now at a place where I can find peace in the most troubling of times, all the while training in effective ways to protect those I love.
