Scornavacco Story | History of SMAA | Scornavacco Martial Arts Academy

www.scornavacco.com [cached]

Brad Scornavacco first learned about Martial Arts by playing around in the backyard with his childhood friends, but it was his intense desire to learn effective self-defense techniques that inspired him to begin formal schooling at Dragon Wind Kenpo Karate on the South Side of Chicago under Lee Wedlake Jr., a 9th Degree Black Belt and first generation student of American Kenpo founder, Ed Parker, and one of the top teachers of Kenpo in the world.

...
Brad and his family also recognized that if a child was going to thrive on the South Side of Chicago, he also needed to enroll in the best schools possible. From Catholic Schools, to a Magnet School for academically elite students, to a private, Jesuit high school in Chicago, Brad developed into a life-long student of ideas, knowledge, reading and art. A near perfect score on his SATs, a fabulous grade point average, and an all-around commitment to stewardship and martial arts earned him a scholarship to Northwestern University, a Top-Ten School in Evanston, Illinois and it is there where he met his future wife (and PhD in Education), Dr. Karla.
PHASE 2: GRADUATION - NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY
Brad continued his Martial Arts training through college both as a teacher and a student. Upon graduation, Brad started to work at the Chicago Board Options Exchange, doing what Northwestern graduates were supposed to do� in order to earn money and secure high-power jobs. But his real education� and his heart spoke louder, as he made the life-long decision to commit himself to helping others actualize their human potential and he saw that the best way to do this was through Martial Arts training. Majoring in philosophy at Northwestern aided him in this process; his studies afforded him the opportunity to look closely at the philosophy and world-views that underscore the martial arts. Brad engaged in formal studies in logic, critical analysis, epistemology, and psychological development, which provided him with a foundation for how the human brain works as well as how people learn most effectively.
PHASE 3: FLORIDA
In addition to seeking out the top academic schools that were the best fit� for Brad, Brad continually sought out the best Martial Arts teachers. Master Lee Wedlake had left the Windy City for sunnier skies in Florida, but that did not stop Brad from learning directly from him. Brad moved to Florida to train and teach for Master Wedlake as well as to learn from him about management systems for opening and directing a reliable and thriving Martial Arts school.
PHASE 4: COLORADO
After a three-year apprenticeship, Brad aimed to fulfill yet another one of his dreams: to move to Colorado and open a thriving Martial Arts school among a backdrop of mountains. He pinned a map of Colorado on his bedroom wall as a visual reminder of his goal, and within that next year he was driving across the country, ready to engage in the next phase of his life. Brad opened Scornavaccco Martial Arts Academy in Longmont, Colorado in August, 1998, and it has been successfully serving families in the Longmont area ever since that opening day. The friendliest school in town with a committed, well-educated staff, Scornavacco Martial Arts Academy has developed into a mainstay (and thriving educational family center) in the Longmont community.
PHASE 5: RUSSIA
Brad did not stop there. He continued to build upon his martial arts repertoire by training with his friend, Al McLuckie, a Filipino Martial Arts Master, who introduced him to yet another Martial Art that offered Brad something he sought out to learn decades earlier on the streets of Chicago: practical self-defense where there is not just one right way� to do something, but a multitude of approaches, the best of which is the one that works for you, not against you.
...
Since that first seminar, Brad has immersed himself in Systema training, including four trips to Russia to train with Colonel Mikhail Ryabko, and countless seminars throughout the United States and Canada.Brad is currently one of the few senior instructors of Systema in America.
...
In partnership with his wife, Dr. Karla, a Harvard University graduate with a PhD in Education, Brad Scornavacco shares many secrets to a good life - " breathing, fluid movement, self-control, focus, and relaxation.
...
It was through play that Brad was first introduced to Martial Arts, and it was through a keen awareness of a need for practical self-defense that motivated him to continue.
...
Mr. Scornavacco is a wonderful man, a talented practitioner, and a caring and gifted teacher."
...
Brad Scornavacco carries with him the knowledge, professionalism, and positive attitude of a well-schooled graduate.

"For more than a year, I've had the opportunity to attend many classes where I learned various self-defense techniques with Brad Scornavacco. I have found him to be a teacher who is well versed in the subject of self-defense and who is very effective in assuring that all of his students can experience success. My daughters and myself have enjoyed a greater degree of confidence since taking classes under Mr. Scornavacco's leadership."
-Monique Custer
I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND HIM TO ANYONE
"I am favorably impressed with the level of commitment and dedication that Mr. Scornavacco has towards women's issues in regards to self-defense, myself having four teen-aged daughters and a wife that have studied under him for the past year and a half. As a Martial Artist, he is one of the most practical and skillful individuals that I have ever witnessed, but what is more impressive is his desire to openly share that knowledge and skill with everyone, from children to adults, as their level of development permits. He is very sensitive to his student's progress and developmental needs, and adjusts his teaching accordingly, to maximize the learning experience. Mr.Scornavacco's enthusiasm and love for what he is doing is a great motivational force for all of his students.
...
"I have studied under Mr. Scornavacco for three and one-half years. During that time I have come to know Mr. Scornavacco very well and hold him in the highest regard. f all the martial artists I have met, Mr. Scornavacco is one of the most competent and knowledgeable instructors in his field. More important than his in-depth understanding of karate, however, he has demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities and admirable sense of character. It is these things that make him stand out amongst his peers. I have entrusted not only my own education to him but also that of my wife and my six year old son. He possesses the traits that draw the karate students my school has now and keeps them coming back year after year. ver the years I have also had the opportunity to instruct many classes with Mr. Scornavacco. From this point of view I have seen first hand the effect Mr. Scornavacco has had on the students, most notably the children. We have well over one hundred children in our school and every one of them looks to Mr. Scornavacco as an excellent role model. The parents are equally as pleased and credit the success our school enjoys to Mr. Scornavacco."
-Steve Catapano
"Mr. Scornavacco's humble yet enthusiastic approach to teaching Karate endeared him to people of all ages and he is a special favorite among the children. He is  an instructor who values  his work and has a deep sense of commitment to his community."
...
Mr. Scornavacco taught an after school karate class for our PTA for the past three years.
...
Both children loved Mr. Scornavacco's classes; He always made the classes fun while maintaining order.
...
n classes, Mr. Scornavacco always stressed using your head rather than your fists.
...
So this young kid (Brad Scornavacco) came over and offered to help. A week later I watched this young kid teach a class. I found the students to be really sharp but I was really impressed that the instructor truly knew what he was teaching.
...
r. Brad was the driving force of our studio, and the reason it was voted the best Karate studio in Ft. Myers for the past two years.
...
"I would like to take this opportunity to tell you my experience with Brad Scornavacco. Let me first say that I've been a law enforcement officer for almost 14 years and have been trained by the F.B.I, Secret Service, and a multitude of special operations divisions. What I'm trying to say is I know a good instructor when I see one. During my training in Kenpo Karate, Brad has been my primary teacher. I try to keep it this way, due to the fact that he is very particular about the art and knows how to get his point across. his isn't only with adults, either. I have a 6-year-old son who is a difficult child to teach. When all his teachers said put him
