Our Philosophy: A Modern Tradition…A Timeless Art

Our approach defines us.

The line between tradition and our art’s application blurs.


Traditions must adapt to modern day challenges – evolving the art.

We do not honor traditions by placing them on a pedestal.

We honor them by honing their application in today’s changing world.

Our tradition lives and breathes.

Our tradition tests itself in training and walks along side us- each day.

Each student is part of our heritage.

Our students must question everything.

The spirit of our art lives in the “here and now”.

Our art honors tradition–from the past.

By “living it”– in the present

Questioning and building upon it…

For the future.
