Kent graduated from Mizzou in 1988 and pursued a career in Rehabilitation Medicine in the field of Prosthetics. Upon completion of his residency at North Kansas City Hospital he moved to St. Louis to practice.
Kent was always deeply interested in self defense having spent 4 years in Army ROTC and 2 years in the Army National Guard. He earned his 1st Dan Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do in 2009. After reaching level of Black Belt ,he felt that his training lacked the realistic applications he felt were important to achieve the level of confidence to be able to defend himself and his family.
Kent saw a segment on Krav Maga on the Discovery Channel and contacted Steve at Xtreme Krav Maga for a free class. It was love at first site! Kent was hooked and trains every free moment he can find at Xtreme Krav Maga.
