My name is Sam Chapman. I am 30 and a native of Seattle, Washington. I am a hospital Security Officer by trade. Martial arts have been a passion of mine since the police academy in 2013. I have dabbled in many styles such as aikido, hung ga kuen, brazilian jiu-jitsu, krav maga, jeet kune do and western boxing. I have also sampled a few styles of kung fu such as baguazhang, tong bei and wing chun. I am excited as I feel that southern mantis is the most practical style I have seen in a long time.
