Ron has been a student of many disciplines of martial arts starting at age 12. His journey began with five years of Tae Kwon Do before college.
While attending Rutgers University, he studied Wu Shu Kung Fu. After graduating, Ron earned his Black Belt in American Freestyle Karate and began studying the more internal martial art of Hung Gar Kung Fu. Finally, he added the study of Isshinryu Karate. At age 25 Ron began his journey in Yoga and enrolled in his first level one Reiki training. He realized that the common denominator in every art he studied was breathing; each style had its own way to "breathe". The combination of hard martial arts, like Kung Fu and Karate, blended with the soft martial arts of yoga and Reiki became Yogarate with Ron as the first Yensei (Yogi/Sensei).
Currently, Ron and his team teach Yogarate in over 50 schools within the tri-state area including the true future leaders of the planet at the preschool at the United Nations.
