Menkyo Kaiden Shihan David Flosdorf is one of the instructors at the Eighth Light Dojo. He began studying Hakko Denshin Ryu under Soke Lamonica at the Honbu Dojo in 1994 after graduating from the University of Akron. While a student at the University, David was exposed to Hakko Denshin Ryu through the self-defense class offered as a Physical Education credit. David was introduced to Sensei Lamonica by Mr. Mark Skitzki, a fellow student at the University and a Shodan. Shihan Flosdorf was promoted to Shihan in 2002. When not studying jujutsu, David works as an engineer and enjoys spending time with his wife, Elizabeth, his three dogs, and even finds time to fish on occasion.
