Sensei Mish is a fantastic teacher, he has the unique ability to split moves up into connecting segments that are easy to learn and easy to reconnect into the complete move. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable in martial arts. I highly recommend him for beginners and advanced martial artists looking to improve their skills or learn new styles. I have learned Modular Knife from him in both online (live video) and in person classes, and have increased my skill set considerably with both of these methods.

I attended an online Modular Knife User Certification course at Artisan Martial Arts. Sensei Mish is a great instructor who’s able to break down the Modular Knife curriculum into manageable pieces. His video equipment is state-of-the-art, which made learning via “Zoom” a great learning experience. I would highly recommend Artisan Martial Arts, whether it be in-person instruction or online classes.
