About Bill Woodall
Bill Woodall has had an interest in martial arts and woodworking for quite some time and just recently has been fortunate enough to be able to merge these interests. He is well versed in the technology field and holds a degree in electrical engineering as well as an advanced engineering degree in the design and operation of space vehicles. He is an expert in the area of wide area and local area networks and holds an industry certification in this field. He currently works in the aerospace field and is located at the Kennedy Space Center.
His interest in martial arts started in high school with a friend who was an expert at grappling and empty hand techniques. His interest in woodworking started out innocently enough in high school shop class making chess tables and wall shelves. Throughout the years, he honed his woodworking
skills by making tables, boxes and picture frames for friends and family.
After marriage he sought formal martial arts training and hearing good
things about a martial arts instructor by the name of John Quest in Titusville
Florida, he began his study at the dojo Karate Quest. He earned his First Dan
in Ryukyu Kempo in 2004, his Second Dan in Ryukyu Kempo in October 2007 and he is currently an instructor at the Karate Quest
dojo. It was during his martial arts training that he discovered the need for a good woodworker.
Soon he began
to make martial arts weapons and Tameshigiri cutting stands for members in his dojo and neighboring dojos. Friends and family
encouraged him to create a website so his handmade martial arts weapons would be available to a wider audience. He hopes you
enjoy his website.
