Shihan Steve Dwyer

Owner & Master Instructor

A father of four, Shihan Stephen Dwyer considers himself blessed to be able to do what he loves for a living.

Martial arts has been a passion of Stephen Dwyer since he was a young boy. Throughout his years of training he has learned many things that have not only made him a better martial artist and teacher, but also a better person in general.

A 5th Degree Black Belt, and teaching since the young age of 16, Stephen Dwyer has had the opportunity to have an impact on many people’s lives, both children and adults alike. Watching children grow from the moment they come in to the dojo has really given him some wonderful memories and fulfillment. To see someone who may have problems in school, social or confidence issues, transform into a dynamic person with not only skill, but also confidence and strong character that lasts a lifetime, is an incredibly rewarding experience. He is truly blessed to be able to do what he loves for a living.

Stephen Dwyer is also the coach of the studio’s competition team and is a 7 KRANE National Champion in the Mens 30+ Black Belt Weapons and Forms divisions. As a member of "Team Next Level" (a world black belt team,) he has won over 20 Grand Championships along with over 200 first place victories in various tournaments in his 21+ years in the martial arts.
