Rob St. Jean

1986     Rob St. Jean was first introduced to the Martial Arts with a seasonal trial offer in Scarborough, Ontario. Enrolled in traditional karate with his foster brother at the local recreation centre, the training did not last, but it planted a seed.

2000     Fast forward to Steve Stewart's Modern Martial Arts affiliate school in Chatham, Ontario, on February 18th. Gary Anstice, who owned the school at the time, was his first instructor. Robbie remembered what had first attracted him to the Martial Arts, and immediately immersed himself in a lifelong study.

When he reached the level of orange belt, he was asked to assist in classes by teaching Kenpo Karate to lower belts, a basic introduction to new students. He quickly found that passing knowledge onto others was both challenging and very rewarding. It was at this time that Rob truly understood his passion for the Martial Arts and realized that he wanted to open his own school.
