Elijah Smith, Sensei began studying martial arts at the age of twelve, and got his first job, a paper route, in order to pay for it. He has been practicing Martial Arts for over 27 years and enjoys the physical and mental conditioning it provides. He studied Yamabushido Kempo Jutsu with Sean Waugh, Kaiso, and currently holds the rank of 3rd Degree Black Belt.
Smith Sensei has lived in various parts of the United States, which also gave him the opportunity to study American Kenpo with Lee Wedlake, and Muay Thai with the NBS Gym. His travels gave him opportunities to use his skills, but more importantly, it also taught him how to effectively use his skills to defuse challenging situations. He is very passionate about teaching kids how to deal with bullies, and teaching both men and women how to defend themselves in an altercation. He has always had the desire to open a studio and share his passion for martial arts with others. He recently came to settle in Clearfield, Utah and opened Mountain Storm Self Defense in order to teach others how to defend themselves and how to handle difficult situations.
