East Hartford CT Karate School

Dr. Scherban has been studying the Martial Arts for over 40 years and has been a certified instructor for over 30 years. He has taught thousands of students over the years in a variety of disciplines, most notably, Bando, Karate, and Tai-Chi.  Dr. Scherban  studied Kokondo Karate under the tutelage of Mr. Paul Arel, a  martial artist and accomplished self defense expert. Mr. Arel and Dr. Scherban developed the Kokondo style into a very successful system producing  some of the best martial artists in the area. During this time, Dr. Scherban also studied Jiu Jitsu with Mr. Chuck Mason, Judo with Mr. Arthur Dorman, Tai-Chi with Mr. Chen Li, and Jeet Kune Do with Mr. Bruce Lee. It was during this time, (late 60’s) that Dr. Scherban developed the self defense techniques and open hand and full contact fighting style that won him many trophies and tournament victories. It was during one of these tournaments in 1970 that Dr. Scherban first encountered Dr. Gyi of the Bando System
