Although Jack has won many important tournaments at a high-ranking level of competition, he is most dedicated to the instruction of martial arts. Many others who teach martial arts are simply part-time instructors. However, because martial arts instruction is Jack's only professional focus, he has become very adept at personally helping others to develop their own, individual skill sets, distinct from those of other students, thereby allowing them to learn the arts very quickly.
