Other Information:

Richard Roddy is a unique martial artist, with a small handicap he doesn't let that stop him. He has earned his Black Belt in both Taekwondo and Combat Hapkido and his level 2 Instructor in the Philippine Martial Arts Alliance.
He also started a MMA Fight team in 2005. He was told he was insane to do this class that it was just a fleeing trend that it would never be here to stay. But now in 2009 it is even bigger than boxing and simular sports. He is known at the Mad Scientist to his students for the different work out exercises. His cardio hasn't been beat in the ring yet! He has several amatuer fighter and one Pro fighter who have won the Light Heavyweight Title and the Middle Weight Title in the LFC. Now it seems as if other Instructors have learned what Richard knew in the beginning that MMA is here to stay. He also is an assistant instructor to Master T. Roddy and is involved in day to day classes. If you would like to contact him, his email is blackbelt721@yahoo.com
