Jump Back to the Action:
My name is Sensei Steven Brown and I am a 1st Degree Black Belt. I started my Martial Arts training under the ACTIVSTARS program in 2002. In 2005, I earned my Black Belt in Kenpo Karate and went on to earn my Black Belt in Shotokan under the ACTIVSTARS program in 2006. I took a break for a few years and graduated from the University of Arkansas in the spring of 2017. I am an electrical engineer for Kansas City Power and Light. I am certified in Concussion Protocol and CPR Basic Life Support with AED training. After graduation, I missed teaching and gaining more knowledge about Martial Arts; I am extremely happy to be back and teaching again.
I have a great passion for learning Martial Arts and I learn something new from every class I am part of. I have a feeling of joy and pride to help students of all ages learn more about martial arts and how to protect themselves from danger. Connecting with students helps me share my knowledge with them, but I learn a great deal of information from students as well. In addition, I have received training in Chinese Fan, Bo Staff, Broadsword, and Katana.
As an ACTIVSTARS instructor, I want to challenge students mentally and physically to achieve greater knowledge in Martial Arts. At the same time, I want the students to enjoy themselves and cherish every moment they are with their fellow classmates and instructors.
Kids benefit in big ways from our programs

"The best thing any young cheerleader can do to get ready for their school’s cheerleading tryouts."
"Big emphasis on teamwork and fun, which you don’t find in many programs. Thank you for being so inclusive."
