In 1979 Master Salvage began teaching students the principles and skills of safety, peace of mind, courage, abundance, love, and confidence in a small Martial Arts studio. Soon after, he began to reach out to his community, schools, and businesses and began to share how these principles can work for personal growth, professional stability, and relationship building.
