Always drawn to swordsmanship and martial arts, Justin was an avid reader of Japanese history and the martial arts of the Medieval Japan at a young age. He started his martial arts career in 2002 in earnest with Taekwondo and has since had experience with other martial arts and sports including various Asian styles, sport fencing, and MMA which resulted in an amateur cage fight in 2009. In 2007 he found the ARMA and was immediately drawn to the practicality of the Renaissance martial tradition along with the '"no nonsense" mindset it fostered. The more he discovered the richness and depth of this lost art, the more he loved it. He has since earned his Scholar Adept: Longsword ranking and helped found the ARMA Murray and ARMA North Carolina study groups. He currently serves as Study Group Coordinator for the ARMA NC Group. He has a special interest in the principles of self defense involving knives and daggers used during the Renaissance, and has presented on Fiore dei Liberi's dagger at multiple ARMA International Gatherings.
