Organizer the Citadel Combat Arena LLC

Organizer of Summer Slash

My name is Morgan Garrett, and I am the owner and founder of the Citadel Combat Arena LLC.

I have been a lifelong martial artist since the age of 9. Staring off in my youth as most kids do with some form of empty hand style such as karate or kung fu, i chose both.

As I progressed, I moved into traditional weapons forms such as the sword, the staff, the spear and butterfly knives. I began to have a growing interest in the Japanese arts and pursued a short Career in sport Kendo that progressed into a deep study of Kenjutsu. All of my certification comes from the Shinkendo Federation, and all of my paperwork is Signed Directly by the hand of its founder and Headmaster Soke Obata Toshishiro.

Outside of a 24+ year long study of Japanese swordsmanship i have also self motivated and sought out teaching from other styles such as PTK Kali and other FMA weapons based arts.  I am  also pursuing knowledge about HEMA and Historical Martial arts of western Europe as well as Compete in Tournament for HEMA, Kendo and other weapons based combat sports. I am still a student of all these things and love sharing what I have learned and am currently learning with others on the same path.
