Sensei Joe Herreman
Sensei Herreman began his study of the martial arts in 1999 under the head instruction of Hanchi Julio (Mutch) Usera at the Rapid City YMCA. After graduation from high school, Joe moved to Brookings, S.D. to pursue a degree in biology where he founded Dynamic Martial Arts of Brookings with one student. During his five years in Brookings, Joe grew DMA of Brookings into a thriving martial arts program.
After graduation, Joe moved to Sioux Falls, S.D. for work, but continued to drive to Brookings three times a week to instruct students. Then in the fall of 2007, Sensei Herreman made the decision to move his dojo to Sioux Falls. Dynamic Martial Arts of Sioux Falls opened its doors on September 1st of 2007.
Since the move to Sioux Falls, Dynamic Martial Arts has become synonymous with quality martial arts instruction in the region. Each year, DMA of Sioux Falls hosts the region's only open format tournament, offers multiple self defense seminars to the community, and hosts seminars for the area's martial artists in the arts of Jujitsu, Karate and Iaido.
Sensei Herreman continues to train, teach and compete martial arts under the Master instruction of Hanchi Mutch Usera (9th Dan) in Bujin Ki Ryu Jujitsu, as well as studying Kobudo (Okinawan weapons), Matsumura Shorin Ryu Karate, Eishin Ryu Iaido (Japanese sword) under Hanchi George Alexander (10th Dan).
