OUR TEAM

Where the Passion Begins

MASTER ALEX LONABAUGH

7th Dan Master  Instructor

Master Alex has been with Yi's Karate of Cherry Hill for over 20 years as our senior instructor. After decades of experience training under Kwan Jang Nim Yi, we’re thrilled to have his expertise in our  classes.  He has a gift for making children feel comfortable and appreciated, and for making the adults work hard.

MASTER JAMES ROBINSON

5th Dan Master Instructor

Master Robinson has been training for nearly 20 years. As an instructor, he is known for his firm, consistent, and encouraging direction of the children's classes.  He is committed to providing students with the skills and tools necessary to continue their learning journey to black belt and beyond.

MASTER RAMON MORALES

4th Dan Master Instructor

Although he is only with us on Saturdays, Master Morales brings passion and decades of experience to his classes.  His teaches both children's and family classes and is always willing to help students with whatever they need to improve upon.  Be prepared to sweat and get a ton of great sparring tips along the way!

MR. ED IRWIN

2nd Dan Assistant Instructor

Mister Irwin started his journey with Kwan Jang Nim Yi many moons ago and after a hiatus of twenty years has come back to train with us.  And we are so lucky that he did!  He has a keen eye for nuances and practical applications within techniques and forms.  Mister Irwin teaches Friday evening self defense classes for our Black Belt Club.

MR. JOSHUA HALPERN

2nd Dan Assistant Instructor

Like many of our adult students, Mister Halpern has the dubious distinction of being outranked by his child, who also trains with us.  (Seriously...it's a thing here.  Almost all of our adult students have black belt kids.)  Mister Halpern enjoys adding conditioning and endurance training to his classes.  Be prepared to sweat when he is your instructor!

MR. ROBERT TELSCHOW

1st Dan Assistant Instructor/manager

One of the newest member of our team, Mister Telschow (aka Mr. T), brings a fresh perspective and a lot of energy to his classes.  (He is also outranked by his child)  He can be found here on Friday nights for the Family Class and Saturday mornings for Little Dragons.

MRS. DEBORAH TELSCHOW

1st Dan Assistant Instructor/Manager

Mrs. Telschow is the most junior of our instructors and is grateful for the support of her "karate family".
