Larry began his martial arts training in high school with Shorin-Ryu at Wong's Karate and Kung Fu Society, in Orillia, under Sensei Gil Gauthier. After four years of training, he left Orillia to attend College in Sault Ste. Marie. After a short break (20 years!), he resumed training under Jim at the Prince Township Club with his daughter. Initially joining to get into better shape, Larry rediscovered his passion for martial arts, and spent the first few years of training catching up with Ray and Anthony. Receiving his first degree black belt in October 2005, and second degree in October 2009, Larry continues to train at Ho Shin Sool, and enjoys working with the kids classes. He regularly attends seminars in Barrie, Sudbury and Elliot Lake to enhance his martial arts training.
