My name is Brandon Vaughn and I have 30+ years of martial arts experience and currently hold a 7th Degree Black Belt in Karate. In addition to Karate, I have also trained in Taekwondo, Wushu, Escrima/Arnis, Krav Maga, and Gracie Jiu-jitsu. I have been a martial arts and self-defense instructor for 18 years, during which time I have been a school owner, a defensive tactics instructor for hospital security and emergency services personnel, and a certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu instructor. Regardless of what class I am teaching, my goal is always the same, to help my students gain the same benefits that I did from the martial arts: confidence, self-discipline, and the peace of mind that comes from knowing you can defend yourself if needed. Martial arts is my passion and I have dedicated my life to sharing my knowledge and my love of the martial arts with my students. I am honored to have the opportunity to continue to do so as an instructor with Family Kicks Championship Martial Arts.
