Patrick Burton


Sensei Patrick Burton is a sixth degree black belt in Shorin-ryu karate and veteran Army Ranger with over 25 years of martial arts training.  In short, he can kick some ass, but he'd rather use his training and background to help others reach their fitness goals.  Born and raised in Baltimore, Maryland,   Sensei Patrick found a lot of success early on in competitive sport karate.  Restless, and drawn to the warrior ideals of duty, honor, loyalty, and courage, Sensei Patrick joined the Army at seventeen.  He later decided to use his experiences to help kids, educating young people in after-school, summer camp, wilderness education and therapeutic residential programs in addition to youth karate and self-defense classes. In founding Warrior Fusion, Sensei Patrick created the Young Warriors Karate & Self-Defense Program to bring martial arts to kids in their communities.  He is a certified personal trainer, and whether you're young or young at heart, into martial arts, boxing, strength training or all of the above, he can help you get to where you want to be and channel your own inner warrior - yeah, it's cheesy, but TRUE.
