Sensei Thomas Heckler is the father of 2 boys and the husband of a wonderful wife. He is a property manager by trade, but karate practitioner and avid golfer are his passions. Teaching is more of a reward than a duty for him. He looks forward to doing these well into the future.

“I grew up on a farm with an older sister and helped in raising 6 cousins. I have been the caring and nurturing figure from a young age. The philosophies of ‘two wrongs don’t make a right’ and ‘you get more bees with honey than with vinegar’ tend to stick with me. This is part of the legacy I wish to pass to my kids.”
