David studied boxing growing up. The thing he loved most about CDK is the family atmosphere. He said he felt welcomed from the first day he started. “What I like about teaching the most is seeing a student get that “aha” moment from something I have taught them, it is a great feeling when it happens to me and it makes me happy for them when they feel it to!”
