Meet Instructor Chester Gustavson- Owner/Head Instructor – 4th Degree Black Belt
Chester started his martial arts journey at AKF Martial Arts Academy of Neillsville (formerly Three Rivers Martial Arts) in 1991 and earned his black belt in 1998. It was in this year that he started to assist his instructor Master Linda Imler with her women’s self-defense classes. The program that Chester uses today is primarily based off of Master Imler’s program.
In 2008 Chester opened his commercial martial arts academy, AKF Martial Arts of Eau Claire LLC. It was at this time he was able to focus on a women’s self-defense program. He has since developed relationships with local law enforcement & area businesses that have added valuable knowledge, information and physical technique to AKF’s Women’s Self Defense Program.
He looks forward to sharing his experiences with you during this class in the hope it helps you to live a healthier and safer lifestyle.
