University Karate Center owes its success to a tight knit group of experienced, caring, and focused instructors. Under the supervision and guidance of Shihan Robert Heale Mason, we constantly strive to improve our skills. All of our instructors are students of MuDoKai and train regularly.

Get to know just a few of our dedicated team:

Shihan Robert Mason

Founder MuDoKai – Chief Instructor, Grand Master

Having started his training in 1962, Robert Mason traveled the world learning about a wide range of styles, bringing these insights back to the MuDoKai curriculum. His background in Developmental Psychology enabled him to create a system which guides students of all ages through a cycle of empowerment, improvement, and growth. Shihan Mason also spent 7 years training in the Alexander Technique, a scientific-based approach to body mechanics, posture, and more. These insights became incorporated into the curriculum and are taught to all the instructors. Shihan Mason is also the World Commissioner for the ISKA (International Sport Karate Association), the sanctioning body for large martial arts events such as the US Open. The event is broadcast each year on ESPN2.

Sensei Brian Stamp

Lead Adult Program & Tai Chi Instructor, 6th Dan

With more than 20 years of martial arts teaching experience, and decades more in training, Sensei Stamp delivers deep knowledge and support to all his students. His practice of Tai Chi gives him a unique perspective on the MuDoKai style, which he is happy to share with you!

Sensei David FungSang

Lead Junior Program Instructor, 5th Dan

Since he began his training at age 5, Sensei FungSang has sought to grow his own skills, while passionately helping others in their own pursuits. Mr. FungSang is a student favorite when he teaches the Karate Tigers & Little Dragons classes.

Sensei Joe Winn

Instructor & Assistant Tai Chi Instructor, 4th Dan

His training began in 1996, just as he entered the challenging environment of middle school.

Mr. Winn has more than two decades of training experience to help you overcome any obstacles.
