Sensei Terry Quinn


Sensei Terry began training Martial Arts over 35 years ago.  He started out in Kyokushin Karate at the Saizen Dojo in Endicott NY.  He trained Kyokushin karate briefly in New Paltz (where he must have trained with Shidoshi Sean when Shidoshi was only 14…. But he just can’t remember).  

He switched to Tae Kwon Do after moving to Poughkeepsie NY.  He has a 3rd degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do training under Kwang Jang Nim Robert Dvorkin.  In addition he has trained Goju Ryu Karate, Pinjat Silat and has over 20 years of training in Matayoshi Kobudo (Traditional Okinawan Weapons).  He joined Fighting Spirit Dojo when it opened in New Paltz and his three children are also students at the dojo.
