''My journey in the arts began decades ago when I began taking traditional Tae Kwon Do and Judo classes. Eventually, I joined a group doing traditional Shorei Kempo in Kenosha, where I met Pat Weyand, Tony Pontillo, Jason Rasch and Scott Otter, all now Black Belts themselves. My training was supplemented by some people I met on the West Coast; it was strictly military type training without it being specific to any martial arts style.''

Sensei Tenuta continues, ''Their entire focus was to disable the opponent before they disabled you.''


''I am helping at the Sho Shin Kan dojo because I truly enjoy sharing what I have learned with others, and find an easier path through their life's journey, wherever it may lead them.''
