By the time he was 12 years old he was helping and assisting students in classes and began teaching when he was 15 years old. Especially went he can help his students to attain their goal of Black Belt.
In 2001 Mr. Lee Sandt was a chief instructor at the brand new studio Karate World of Oakwood, which is now Rock Solid Karate. One of his most rewarding times in the martial arts was testing for his Black Belt with his Dad.
