William Smith

William began his training in 2003 when the St. John’s academy was less than a year old. He has grown up in our programs starting with Kids Karate, to Kenpo Karate, then to Gracie Jiu Jitsu, and Kickboxing. His well rounded martial arts education and long competitive career has made him a versatile instructor. Some career highlights include multiple major wins at the junior level of provincial competition, hard fought duel silver medals in fighting at the NASKA US Open, and the NLJJO blue belt title in his first year competing as and adult. William teaches our Saturday kids’ classes.
