Chris Schumacher

HEAD INSTRUCTOR - Blackburn South
Phone. 0490-607-804
Chris started training with Kando at the age of 7. 15 years later, he still trains with the same passion he had when he started. Currently a 3rd degree black belt, he firmly believes that he would not be the person he is today without having been a martial artist.

The fundamental life skills such as confidence and discipline that he has gained through his training have been a huge benefit in his life. He holds the view that Kando is a vehicle to personal development and a more positive lifestyle. Now, Chris gains as much joy and reward from the students he teaches as he does from his own self-development.

Chris has been teaching and assisting in classes for over 7 years, and has helped build a safe and vibrant environment within the school. He is now an excellent teacher that takes fun and energetic classes with the aim of working with the students to achieve their best. Qualifications that he has includes a working with children check, first aid certificate and a certificate III and IV in Sports Coaching.

Additionally, Chris understands the positive influence that role models can make to children and strives to lead by example. He will always make time to speak to and encourage a child, and looks to reinforce the family values that parents will be teaching at home.
