About the Founder, Master Roy
( JRroy@JRroy.com )
Master Roy (students call him Sifu [See-Fu]) has been a full time martial arts teacher and school owner for over 45 years. He started his study of eastern philosophy and meditation in the 1960’s and continues today. He is a 7th generation Disciple in Yang Style Tai Chi Ch’uan (June 30, 2001), an 8th degree Black belt in American Karate (2009), 5th degree Black belt in Modern Arnis (1997), and master teacher of Bagua Zhang, I Ch’uan, and several styles of Qigong.
Master Roy has been a lifelong musician, playing drum set and bass guitar in bands, and more recently he’s taken up guitar. His long term, consistent musical practice has influenced the way he approaches and practices martial arts. An avid underwater photographer (JRRoyPhoto.com), he also enjoys motorcycling, sailing, down hill skiing, traveling, and hanging out with his wife Ginnie and his two fabulous grandkids.
