"Those who dare to teach must never cease to learn"

Our Instructor

Mr. Scott Bonner

Mr. Bonner's training began over 10 years ago in the art of Tae Kwon Do. He spent that time focusing on serious training and building power. He has brought those traits along to his Kenpo training.

Mr. Bonner started his Kenpo training at our Lafayette UKK school and continues as a student of Mr. Hughes today. His time at the Indiana school was well spent as a full-time student, not only attending all possible regular classes, but also not missing a Friday night forms class. He has also attended many seminars with Kenpo's top instructors, including Mr. Richard "Huk" Planas, the head of our Kenpo lineage.

Known for thinking critically about every piece of information he is taught, Mr. Bonner puts a strong focus on building proper basics in his classes. This is the UKK way and it is great to see a strong focus on drilling the foundation of our art in all of his classes. Too many students and teachers get focused on just learning more techniques and never take enough time to do the drilling necessary to make those techniques strong.

Mr. Bonner got started teaching on the WashU campus out of a desire to make serious self-defense training available on campus. Making self-defense available for the women of campus is very important to Mr. Bonner.
