Coach Gehl

Coach Zachary Gehl, like many of our coaches and students, was being bullied at school and has seen martial arts as a large influence on his life. The physical and mental growth he has gained from training and competing has helped him with so many other aspects in his life. The mental toughness and determination has also helped him in his investing endeavours.
