1st kuk Shotokan (4/1991)

Mr. Dunn is the senior dan student at the Huron dojang, having joined the first class offered by Mr. Vaillancourt at that location in January 2005.  His prior Shotokan experience shows in his effective use of his reverse punch while sparring, but also his utilization of the current Korean influence of his training in the variety of kicking techniques.  A solid all-around martial artist, Mr. Dunn still enjoys basics, forms and working the jon bong (long staff).
