About Sensei Josh Simon
As a second-generation martial artist, Josh’s training began informally from his father in 1981 at age 6. His dad had been practicing Gojo Ryu at the time for about ten years. Josh’s first formal martial art was the fencing program at Rancocas Valley Regional High School in New Jersey in 1987, which he did that for a number of years until coming into contact with his main martial arts school in Cherry Hill, NJ in 1992. This class was led by Sensei Merrick and Traci Rosenberg and became Josh’s base school for learning the Okinawan art of Wado Ryu.
