Instructor/Owner Jeff Kash

Master Kash is known for his kind, fun, and engaging approach to teaching as well as his unique ability to help students unlock their full potential. His students realize not only the physical benefits of practice but also the wisdom, discipline, and confidence that can come with a commitment to training. Above all, he enjoys seeing his students grow and flourish in and out of the classroom.

In addition to teaching Karate through the Laguna Beach Dojo, Master Kash is a Founding Member and the Head of Educational Development at AchieveMartialArtsAcademy.com a new platform for online Kempo instruction designed to help anyone achieve a Black Belt whether as a supplement to in-dojo training or exclusively online.

Master Kash has developed and actively teaches self-defense courses customized for different audiences including security professionals, families, community organizations, realtors, assault victims, and young people attending university/college. He also regularly runs after school programs and summer camps for elementary and middle school aged children.

Master Kash was twice awarded instructor of the year, was a winner of multiple instructors’ division sparring championships, led instructor development summits and taught aspiring instructors the skills and knowledge to open their own studios. Between 2010 and 2015, Master Kash co-owned and managed five other studios around Orange County.

In his spare time, he engages in adventure racing, cross-fit, yoga, and mountain biking, off-roading, real-estate development, and continues his own martial art practice, studying under Master Josh George, 7th Degree Black Belt.

Master Kash earned a Bachelor’s Degree from Oregon State University in Construction Engineering Management and actively brings that knowledge into the classroom by illuminating the relevant principles from engineering and physics that make certain techniques so effective.

Stephanie Wander

Master Kash (and his staff) is the kind of teacher/coach you want for you and your kids. They start as young as three, but teach students of all ages and the the adult program is excellent too. Master Kash knows the Martial Art deeply, has the ability to impart it to different kinds of learners, and he knows how the practice can positively mold and shape anyone at any age. Every part of my life - fitness, self-esteem, connection with community, ability to handle adversity - is better because I joined the LB Dojo. I will be sharing this special place with my son too once he's old enough!

It's hard for me to put into words how beneficial Laguna Beach Dojo has been for me. I have a professional life and I work quite a bit. Laguna Beach Dojo has helped to keep me present, focused, and motivated. The things I have learned at the Dojo translate almost every single day in many of my real life scenarios. I haven't just been taught how to defend myself, I've been able to grow more than I ever thought was possible, more than I even realized that I needed. I know its cliche, but if I could give more than 5 stars, I would. Keep up the positive and productive work within our community. Thanks, Shawn B.

My son has an IEP at school for a processing disorder and ADHD and this school has been such a game changer for him! Master Kash knows how to work with my son's needs, keep him motivated, and gives him the space to learn at his pace. Everyone is always so kind, patient, and gracious with him. Since starting here my son has learned how to manage his focus and attention to improve his reading and math. I can't recommend Laguna Beach Dojo more!
