Josh has been training in the martial arts for over 30 years. He began his training in the Bujinkan under Dale Seago in San Francisco, CA. Josh received his godan in 2004 before moving to the east coast for the military, and received Daishihan in 2020. He continues to train with Jack Hoban whenever time permits, as well as traveling to train in Japan every year. Josh teaches and trains with a critical eye towards combat, having deployed to Afghanistan multiple times with the army and civilian jobs. Classes will often demonstrate applications of techniques in the context of armored fighting with weapons which would be encountered on today's battlefield.
