Grandmaster Craig H. Seavey

Hanshi Seavey started his self-defense training in his late teens. Boxing being his first love, followed by grappling, and soon after he was introduced to the study of Chinese-Kenpo. Under the tutelage of Mitch Handling and Art Singer, Shihan Seavey started his journey of 43 years in the Martial Arts.

Hanshi Seavey managed and was Chief Instructor of two schools in the early 1970’s and fully owned his own by 1973.  Hanshi Seavey added to his grappling skills in California studying with professional wrestler Jerry Christi. His boxing skills were further developed with the help of professional welterweight boxer Sonny Ray in Long Beach, California. Martial Art disciplines were continued with Jeet Kune Do and a kick boxing combination. A life threatening kickboxing injury discontinued his pursuit in the fast growing sport.

Hanshi Seavey’s livelihood consisted of teaching Martial Arts in the day and working in the nightclub business at night. The latter gave Hanshi Seavey many opportunities to develop his realistic concepts that he had learned over the years. Hanshi Seavey credits his bumpy road childhood to helping him to better understand and help guide some of the students that he has taught over the years. "I got into the Martial Arts to help put structure in my own life not for self-defense”, states Hanshi Seavey.  He continues, “The Martial Arts had been my base to help me with most every situation that has come up in my life since I first started studying.  Teaching is a privilege and one of the most gratifying feelings of emotions you can ever have. I still get goose bumps when presenting a new belt to a student. Today I am trying to educate as many people as I can to the benefits and life enhancement skills you can develop from studying the Martial Arts”.
