Sifu Aaron Butler


Aaron Butler began martial arts in Kenpo at the age of six.  In high school, he trained at The Center for Self Defense, where he was first introduced to Kung Fu and Sanda (chinese kickboxing).  He later began taking Ju jitsu classes and studied boxing while attending Curry College.

Aaron's martial studies began leading him into Chinese Martial arts when he was 19. He threw himself into as many different practices as he could get his hands and feet on until stumbling upon Xing Yi Chuan, which later would become his main focus in the arts.

In 2004 Aaron Butler began teaching full time in Manchester, NH, and joined The Training Station in 2010. He also trains Muay Thai and MMA with Kru John Johnston, BJJ and Judo with Professor Bernadette, and Superfoot and MMA with Master Terry Dow.
