Meet the Teacher

    My name is Andrew Budd and I have loved living and teaching active, healthy life styles my whole life.  My father was a physical education teacher and raised me on the values of making healthy choices and staying active.  I have grown up practicing martial arts and fitness and sharing these practices with my friends long before I grew to adulthood.
     As an adult I attended the University of Texas at Austin (I'm a third generation alumni) and graduated with a bachelor of science in kinesiology in 1997, after which I worked as a personal trainer and taught martial arts to all ages.  I later returned to UT to complete my course work to receive my teaching certification for physical education and started working at NYOS in 2008 where I have been helping students learn and practice healthy habits ever since, all while continuing to teaching martial arts to students of all ages after school and on weekends.
     In my free time I work on my own fitness at the gym and enjoy movies and games.
