While teaching at the Recreation Centers, Sensei Miller also taught privately to members of the Navy's elite Seal Team 6 and taught an accredited women's self defense class at Tidewater Community College.
He then moved to Chicago area where his teaching was halted due to a job that required constant travel.During this time he trained and helped teach at various Isshinryu dojos in the Chicago area.
After moving back to Morton, Sensei Miller began teaching children with the Young American organization.Although teaching kids was rewarding, he really wanted to be able to dive deeper into the training than is possible with their program.It was then that Sensei Miller opened his dojo, Miller's Isshinryu Academy, that meets in the Summit's Edge in Morton, IL.He is also teaching a self-defense class that earns PE credits at Il Central College.
Sensei Miller lives in Morton with his wife and children.For his day job, he owns an Allstate agency in Peoria, IL.
