Adam started his HEMA career in October of 2012. After one class he knew he had stumbled onto something special. Studying under the tutelage of Shawn Oldham who founded The OCG, Adam soon became the senior student in the school, outlasting many who came and went. After a few years Adam began to assist Shawn in running classes, acting as a right hand in the club’s leadership. In December of 2016 Shawn moved away from Kelowna and handed responsibility of the club over too Adam. Adam took on the role of Head Instructor and ran with it. Since then he has expanded classes and is continually working on improving his interpretations of the source material, personal training, and the training of his students.
