Professor Maajid Al Kush

As a retired local law enforcement officer and proud parent of a US Army Veteran, Maajid has enormous appreciation for those individuals dedicating their life to protect and serve. That admiration and respect is reflective in his teaching methods, especially with children. Wanting to impart his martial arts prowess and talents with the youth, Maajid’s passion for working with children is evident with every session…kids love him and he loves kids!! Firm but fair, strict but playful, attentive but not overbearing, and demanding but encouraging. This love of working with kids was fostered and influenced by his mother being an elementary school teacher for 19 years.

In his spare time, Prof. Maajid enjoys painting, speed chess and poetry. Also on good weather days, taking long rides on his motorcycle.
