Mike Wright

Mike Wright has been training in martial arts since he took his first steps.
His father, a Karate black belt and kickboxing champion, started training Mike
early in martial arts to instill discipline, respect, humility and honor. A multi-disciplined
practitioner and competitor, Mike has experience in Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu,
Karate, boxing, Tae Kwon Do, and kickboxing and has a passion and dedication to
continually sharpen his skills as a martial artist.

Mike became an instructor at Lion’s Den Dallas at the age of seventeen. He feels
a responsibility to pass on what he has learned through his lifetime in martial
arts to his students. Throughout his ten years of teaching experience, Michael has
enjoyed working with all age groups whether the focus is to learn a combative martial
art or just a fun way to get in shape.
