East Valley Martial Arts' certified black belt instructors are all committed to sharing and upholding the traditions that have been handed down over decades. Each instructor continues to train as well as teach, and all are very capable and friendly teachers.
We also have several assistant junior black belt instructors working towards adult black belt rank. They are caring, enthusiastic, and a great help in class, especially with other kids.
Michael Newland Renshi
Newland Renshi founded what is now East Valley Martial Arts about 22 years ago. In 2002 he passed the dojo on to the Gauger Renshis. Newland Renshi still participates occasionally at the dojo, and his skills from literally decades of martial arts training make each class he instructs invaluable.
