From my early years as his student, the most important part of my martial art training was absorbing Avi’s approach to martial arts: that of focusing on spirit, a traditional path and technique-not dealing with ego, the chase for grading or self promotion. His motto ‘sometime a teacher, always a student’, is real. It embodies his approach, his endless learning and development, and this amongst his other traits, makes him the great teacher he is.
