Sensei Maurice L. Weathers

Our Leadership Team is dedicated to giving everyone an amazing martial arts experience! We take great pride in helping each student maximize their potential and achieve balance within their lives. Each member of our Leadership Team goes through extensive training in order to be able to provide a great learning platform for each student to excel. Being a 17 year student of the martial arts, Sensei Weathers has provided a structured environment of classes at CASM with the focus of increasing confidence and self esteem, building respect for adults and one another, and developing a work ethic to help young adults to achieve in every field of human endeavor. Sensei Weathers gets to know each of his students personally, and has the highest interest in helping them reach their goals and develop their talents, so that they will be successful, not only in the dojo but in the classroom as well. It is Sensei's belief that if you do not try your best, then you have already failed.....mediocrity is not an option.
