About the instructor:
Mr. Swoboda has been involved in the martial arts for over 18 years. He started his martial arts training in 1990 in Tae Kwon Do and Fu Jow Pai Kung Fu under the direction of Sifu Joe Zandar and Sensei Ron Dunkun. After receiving a Green Belt, he was introduced to Guro Keith Schuch and Original Martial Systems in Appleton Wisconsin. He began to train Shorei Ryu Karate on a daily basis.

It was at OMS that he met Guro Tom Skoglind, Suro Emanuel Hart, and Mangisursuro Mike Inay at a Reactive Knife seminar. Mr. Swoboda started his education in Inayan Eskrima shortly after. Soon he was cross training between Karate and the Filipino Martial Arts. Within the next year, he added Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to his daily training regiment. He attained his First Degree Black Belt in Shorei Ryu Karate, a Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and he continues to train and teach Inayan Eskrima in Madison Wisconsin.
