On September 19, 2011, my oldest son Kenneth Zimmerman III and I founded the Zimmerman Academy, a martial arts school dedicated to instructing students in self-defense.  Originally based around a more traditional taekwondo curriculum, the academy curriculum has involved into a more holistic self-defense system embracing striking, grappling and weapons.


Kenneth and Caleb Promoted to 2nd Black Rank and 1st Black Rank respectively.

Kenneth is transitioning into the role of Head Instructor as I transition into a mentoring role for Kenneth, my youngest son Caleb and the advanced belts they are training.  Caleb oversees the kids’ program.  We teach a group class on Monday night and will teach private students in the St. Louis area.

Part of our future plans for the academy are an on-line curriculum to supplement live instruction and video seminars.  You can check back here for updates.
