Anthony Glorioso

Head Instructor

5th Degree Black Belt

Old School is proud and honored to offer the knowledgeable and devoted teaching of Mr. Glorioso
to its students. Tony brings not only his wealth of experience, but his high positive energy to every lesson and to every student at Old School Kenpo.


With physical training as a lifelong endeavor,
Mr. Glorioso has been active in wrestling, grappling,
Wing Chun, and weight training in addition to his dedication to Kenpo Karate.


     Training under John Barnett, Tony received his First Degree Black Belt in 1997. For his outstanding performance, he was awarded "Student of the Year" by Grand Masters Chuck Sullivan and Vic Le Roux.


     "It was a great honor to receive my Black Belt, as
well as to be chosen 'Student of the Year' through the IKCA," says Mr. Glorioso. "[My instructor's] dedication to the art has inspired me to continue on...to be able to
pass on what I have learned."


     After receiving his Black Belt, Mr. Glorioso immediately began teaching. After another year in
the system, he earned the status of a fully Certified
Instructor. Tony has now been teaching for over a
 decade and has attained the rank of Fifth Degree
Black Belt.

Tony's personal teaching goal and philosophy is to make "leaders out of students."
"Tony has helped me achieve a lifelong dream, through his belief in me and his personal devotion to me
and to the art,” says Jennifer Thomas, co-founder of Old School. “I am now blessed to be teaching my
own students and running my own school. Tony is truly an inspiration."
