Mr. Waterfall has been involved with Martial Arts since the age of seven. However, it was not until his Senior year in high school training under the tutelage of Master Don Wallen in which he achieved his black belt. Any spare time during high school and college was spent training in various weapon and martial art styles as well as competing in full contact kickboxing. In 2001 Mr. Waterfall became a certified instructor with the Midwest Taekwondo Association.
Mr. Waterfall owned and operated two schools in Indiana while finishing college. Moving to Montana in 2005 and taking time away from teaching martial arts, he went back to college to attain a Masters of Arts in Elementary Education. Mr. Waterfall taught middle school for several years, before focusing once again on the arts. Currently teaching martial arts and boxing full time at his school in Billings, MT, Mr. Waterfall is as passionate as ever about martial arts.
