This group of individuals represents the small percentage of students that I teach who would like to compete with the skills I have passed on to them. Competing is not a required part of my school training, but some students do want to push themselves in this matter. Therefore, it is my role to make sure they have the best training and coaching available for these events.

We call our Team ‘IRON’ as I train them in body and mind until they become like Iron. We became Iron Wolves as many years ago on a vision quest I found my totem (spirit) animal was the Wolf. The qualities of the Spirit Wolf are Family, Loyalty and Strength.

These are the same qualities I look for in my team.
