Alfonso Torregrossa Japanese Budo
I have been practicing martial arts since 1976 without interruption and I have been teaching since 1990 . My mission is to have every individual experience the many benefits of martial arts. This mission is based on my core belief that the martial arts can profoundly change lives. As a martial artist myself who has been teaching classes since 1990, I have seen this change in thousands of students who discover not only the physical benefits of the arts, but more importantly the intangible gifts of respect, discipline, confidence, integrity, and honor.
