With over forty years of martial arts training, twenty five years running schools and training students, and a Master’s Degree from George Washington University in Asian Studies, Sifu David A Ross brings a unique perspective. He holds second degree black belts in Taekwondo and Hapkido under the late Master Pong Ki Kim, and is even more noted for the sixteen years he spent with the late Master Chan Tai-San, being formally adopted as his disciple. Sifu Ross also has training in the Chinese martial arts of Hung Ga and Shuai-Jiao (Chinese wrestling)


Starting in 1994, Sifu David Ross began putting his students in various combat sports competitions in order to test the methods he had been taught and his theories. He considered it a work in progress constantly revising his methods and seeking out more training. His cross training experience includes western boxing, Muay Thai, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu, free style wrestling, Greco-Roman wrestling and Japanese methods of Mixed Martial Arts. The core program retains his Chinese martial arts training, particularly Chan Tai-San’s Lama Pai, but never limits itself.


In total, Sifu Ross produced three world champions, over 18 national champions and a variety of regional and local champions in Sanshou, San Da, Muay Thai, and Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). His school remains located in the heart of downtown Manhattan, New York City. He also offers beginner friendly program including kickboxing programs for fitness.
