We are very excited to have Jack Gialanella partnered with our school. With his exhaustive training and skill set he not only teaches his own students, but us as well. His ability to bring 40 years of training in martial arts to harmony with 15 years of experience in clinical psychology working as a counselor (specializing in violence prevention) allow him to bring a rare cohesion to what he teaches and real life application.

A husband, father of two, a professor at CU Denver, it's hard to believe Jack finds the time to train at all, let alone show the dedication he has throughout the years. You would be hard pressed to find someone with more dedication, love, or excitement for every aspect of the martial arts.

Mark with his Students

Classical martial arts is where Mr. Grove began and he's been training in the same system for nearly 50 years. With that discipline as his foundation he was able to transition into the film industry as a stunt performer and fight choreographer in his early 20's. He wrote and sold his first screenplay in 1994 and was given the amazing opportunity to direct his first feature film in 1999. This led to more writing, producing, and directing as the years moved ahead. His final evolution was becoming a sales agent at international film markets. With over a decade working with distributors he has helped many filmmakers release their films in countries around the world.

Jess McGarity is a wonderful artist and personal friend to us at the dojo. She was the one responsible for the final design of our logo and made the design process easy, professional and fun, all while making the final project gorgeous!

​

Jess is inspired by the natural world and our role as humans within it. She focuses on seeing nature through the dichotomy of life and death, as well as how people represent themselves in the world. She works with self-representation and the concept of embracing a unique sense of self through the individual. Through these concepts she focuses deeply on the methodical and meditative process of creation. She works with a variety of mediums and techniques to become intimately familiar with each piece. As such she often choose processes that are tactile to create environments and experiences, or very detail-oriented to bring the viewer directly into her process.
