​Phillip Dobkins began his study of Martial Arts in 1989 starting with TaeKwanDo with Master Ben Ramsey.  In 1991 he began training with Master Mark Matthews in Okinawan Kempo and American Freestyle Karate.  Graduating in 1999 he attended the University of Tennessee (Martin) with a scholorship in target rifle.  Returning to Wyoming he began teaching with Master Matthews at the Cheyenne YMCA.  He also began to travel to work with as many systems as possible.  Self defense has always been the core of his training.  "The goal is to keep as many people safe" and we teach people a way to stay safe in an unsafe enviroment.  During this time he began training with Master Steve Materkowski in Combat Hapkido.  In April of 2010 Master Dobkins and Sensei Sarah Dobkins opened the Little Martial Arts Center.  In February of 2011 they opened Momentum Academy of Martial Arts
