Sa Ba Nym (4th Degree)

Nishith "Mr. Tiger" Trivedi

I started my martial arts training when I was 8 years old and have earned the respect of some of the greatest martial arts masters in the art. They in turn have granted me the opportunity test and earn black belts in their respective styles. I received my first martial arts title in 1995 and became a certified instructor. Ever since then, I have been training and teaching martial arts for those great master martial artists. Now I have started my own martial arts program involving all the martial arts I know includes Karate, Kung-Fu, Taekwondo, Jujitsu, Aikido, Hapkido, Shotokan, and Tai Chi. My commitment to martial arts has earned me black belts in each of these styles, including one from American Taekwondo Association and Gracie Jujitsu. Each style has taught me two very important qualities common in all styles; physical and life skills.

Just as a house foundation properly designed, engineered and made up of poured concrete, steel reinforcement, concrete blocks, wood frames, and many other things, every master and Grandmasters who has taught and continues to teach me all that I know are part of my foundation:

  • Grandmaster Kang Rhee - PaSaRyu

    • Masters - Dave Prayga, Darren Yancey, Jackie Smith, Anthony Slayton, John Blackstone, See Sun Vu, and many others 

  • William C.C. Chen – Yang Style Tai Chi 

    • Master Larry Brown​

  • Master Gastavo Guillermoni – ATA 

  • Master Chad Chilcutt – Jujitsu

  • Sensei Rob Crowell – Aikido 

My chief mentor is Grandmaster Kang Rhee. He taught that a true martial artists is someone who lives a life of integrity, honor, confidence and humility and can pass it onto others. Everyone can kick and punch, move around in some artistic form or another, break boards, memorize a bunch of kicks, katas, and techniques, just like a person who knows their alphabets can read, but do they really understand what they are reading? As a aspiring martial artist do you use your skills to defend those who are weak and different from you or do you use it to bully and hurt them? If life throws you a challenge, use your discipline and training to overcome it or do you give up? What kind of martial artist are you?


I teach two very important things. The physical technique and all the details that go with it, as well as the life skills one needs to be a true martial artist. Learning and executing proper technique builds discipline and discipline in turn helps one succeed in school and career. Really earning the black belt builds self-esteem and self-esteem in return motivates you to strive for greater honors. Through it all, a martial artist develops a sense of honor.​


I teach more than physical martial arts, I provide you with a sense of honor through PaSaRyu. The martial arts philosophy one lives with is just as important as the physical movements. A student’s potential is limitless because they are constantly determining who they are and what more they can do regardless of their limitations. A PaSaRyu martial artist is one who has the self-respect to constantly improve oneself, self-discipline to overcome any discouragement, ambition to accomplish all their goals and humility to accept everything life has to offer.
