Hi, I’m Sayagyi Dan
I'm a former Special Education teacher and have been teaching Martial Arts since 1994. After 7 years of teaching and working closely with special needs children ages 11- 18, I developed this Martial Arts program utilizing some of the most forward thinking in Physical and Occupational Therapy.
I began studying the Burmese art of Bando in 1980 at the age of eight. I currently hold a 6th level black belt with the ITBA, the EWMAA, the 1WMAF and am a 4 time National Champion of the American Bando Association.
For many years, I have traveled the world teaching other instructors how to create programs like this. The non-profit One World Martial Arts Federation (a 501 (c) 3 org) was created to facilitate that mission.
I am intimately aware of the need for - and the power of - positive outlets and mentoring for the social, emotional and physical growth of individuals. This especially extends to those with special needs. I have two special needs siblings and have long believed that Martial Arts offer a fantastic platform for individuals like my sister and brother.
I founded this online Academy with the express goal of bringing the benefits of Martial Arts training to all. These programs utilize the Theories, Principles, and Philosophies of Thaing/Bando as the base of a true Academy style of Martial Arts instruction. This school also utilizes the most modern and contemporary educational concepts developed for working with students of varied abilities.
