Troy’s strength as an instructor is his continual desire to learn and his ability to cultivate each instructor and each student individually.

He realizes that every student develops differently and has their personal strengths and weaknesses. Sifu Troy uses the martial arts as a vehicle to help others become successful at the academy, in school, at home, and in life.
