The Founder

Luke Pecor, just a guy who discovered his love for martial arts early in life and decided to do something about it. For him, martial arts is more than a passion. It is a lifestyle: body, mind, & spirit.

He began his training in 2001 in Tae Kwon Do. He has focused on cross-training in Karate and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since 2008.

Through the martial arts, Luke has had the opportunity to connect, learn from, and mentor some amazing people. Over the years, he has come to truly appreciate the value of martial training and continues to witness the positive impact of the martial way in the lives of others. He believes that the more influential the martial way becomes at the individual level, the better our society will become as a result.

Luke serves as an EMT with Guilford County EMS.
