President/Founder, International Ninjutsu Federation

Founder, Silent Shadow Martial Arts

Founder, Shintosuru An'ei Ninjutsu

Jeremy Galvez has studied martial arts from the time he was 3 years old, starting out in Shotokan Karate-do, Taekwondo, and Ninjutsu.  He attained knowledge like a sponge and set out early to find his own way, while never leaving his instructor.  In 1996, he felt he had enough information to begin a process of study that would lead him to founding his own style. This process took him all over the country, and ultimately all over the world.  Feeling the need to learn military combatives and tactics he joined the Army as an Infantryman, eventually changing his job to Unit Supply Specialist.  He has been in the Army for 5 years now. Recently he has had his style of Ninjutsu, Shintosuru An'ei recognized and certified internationally.  He has also recently started an organization dedicated to the preservation of modern Ninjutsu, that's main goal is to unify ALL practitioners of Ninjutsu under one governing body.

GM Garrett entered the U.S. Army in 1963 and lived for a year in Chigyong-ni, South Korea, studying Yudo. He also spent four years in Okinawa, Japan, studying Kenpo Karate and traditional weapons. He trained in U.S. Air Force military police auxiliary duties for security and riot control and worked as advisor on counter-terrorism. As a martial arts instructor, he specialized in self-defense and trained military police in control techniques and provided single and team concepts of capture and control for soldiers being assigned to the war in Iraq. Kenjukido Kenpo-Jujitsu is an outgrowth of his unified training style, and is recognized by many Kenpo and Jujitsu practitioners for its simplicity, speed, and street applications.   As such, he was inducted into the Universal Martial Arts Hall of Fame in 2003 and named Instructor of the Year, and again in 2005 and named Master of the Year. As Kocho Sensei of the National Kenjukido Federation, he oversees eight black belt instructors of various ranks studying under him in four schools.
