Welcome to Stavbear Studio! Stavbear is the home of the Chesapeake Stav Club, an affiliate of Ice & Fire USA
. I started Stavbear to promote Stav, the European martial art and body-mind-spirit system. I am a foundation-level practitioner of Stav and a student of Graham Butcher; I have been training with Graham since 2005.
