“But at the end of the day, it’s my martial journey, and by teaching – I become better.” -Daniel Norris. Today we meet Daniel Norris and his students from Arlington Self Defense Club.

What is The Tao of Teaching Martial Arts?
The Tao of Teaching Martial Arts peers into the styles of instruction from a wide range of martial arts instructors. The series deconstructs why certain methods of instruction either sink or swim, and displays the deep impact that martial arts teachers are making in the lives of their students.
In this episode, we meet Daniel Norris, the head instructor of Arlington Self Defense Club. He teaches an eclectic style of street self defense, based in Jeet Kune Do. But, is not afraid to add in some Capoeira, Boxing, Krav, or BJJ when it makes the most sense.
“Remain physically engaged with your students – all the time. Share your energy and feel their energy. That’s how you learn and pass on the art.” -Daniel Norris
