Mr. Parisloff

Mr. Neil Parisloff started his training with YMATC in our first Haidong Gumdo class in the gymnasium of St. Alphonsus elementary school in 2007. He has always loved weapons, samurai swords mostly, so as soon as he heard YMATC had a class he had to join and the love of martial arts went from there. He started instructing around 1 year after starting, at first with sword class, then other weapons, kickboxing, Little Ninjas, Self Defense, and helped out with TKD when his son also trained.

He was born and raised in  Yorkton, SK, where he has also raised a family of his own. Mr. Parisloff is a parts manager/ tech at Haas Nissan and when he is not training he likes to work on his 73 VW beetle, spend time with his family and friends and do a little bit of golfing.
