Mish is the best in his field. He really knows how to teach and gets individual approach to each student. Me and my son took lessons from him and we enjoyed it a lot. If you are considering taking classes – Mish is the best person to learn from!

I have worked with Sensei Mish Handwerker for over a decade and I have found very few martial artists whose conviction and dedication to the martial arts to match his. I am glad that he is bringing his knowledge of both karate and Filipino Marital Arts tot he city of Vancouver (my home town). His presence will raise the bar on martial arts standards in this community.
