Sigung Bobby Stroup has over 30 years of experience as a martial artist. His father was a boxing promoter, affording him the opportunity to learn boxing and to be around world class fighters and trainers from a young age. As he grew, he continued to seek out anyone who would show him the fighting arts.
When he was a sophomore in high school, Sigung Stroup was introduced to Master Richard Burrow, an educator in Jeet Kune Do, Kali and American Kenpo. Next he met Grandmaster Robert Suttles, who introduced him to the art of Kajukenbo. This relationship has lasted to this day and Sigung Stroup is one of the highest ranking practitioners of the Suttle Impact system.
With ranks in Kajukenbo, Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, Traditional Jujitsu, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kali/Escrima, and Gung Fu, Sigung Stroup continues to train, evolve and innovate in the martial arts. He has a broad background in the security industry and currently teaches at Turner Academy of Martial Arts in Eugene, Oregon.
