Bob Yoder is the founder of Tai Shu Do "The Way of Ultimate Techniques". He has over 36 years of experience in the martial arts and has taught thousands of students to include Corrections Personnel, Law Enforcement Officers, and members of the United States Military. He was a registered Unarmed Self-Defense Instructor for the Department of Rehabilitation and Corrections. He instructed Unarmed Self Defense for the State of Ohio Corrections and Franklin County Corrections. He also served in the U.S. Air Force as a Security Forces Member.
He created Tai Shu Do after studying various styles of martial arts for many years and achieving various ranks to include black belt / instructor rankings in several styles of martial arts. He continues to study the martial arts to this day and believes that a true martial artist never stops studying.
A favorite quote of his is: Blend all tactics and skills. The more one knows, the better, for it is far better to have the knowledge and not the need, than to have the need and not the knowledge. But.. also, if knowledge is power, then the power of knowledge is truth. Seek it!
Many of his students that have studied under other instructors before coming to him have said that they have learned more from him in their first month than they did in several months of training they received from other previous instructors. That is because he trains his students in a no nonsense easy to understand manner. It is up to the student if they want to train in a traditional martial arts uniform or sweats. The student has the option of receiving traditional training where they progress through belts and receive certified ranking or if they wish to study in a strictly self-defense manner.
