Jan began his martial arts training in Jujitsu in 1979 in his native country, Poland. Once in Florida, Jan continued martial arts training in Tang Soo Do, a Korean martial art. It was during this time that he got exposed to Aikido based techniques taught by Grandmaster Chuck Blackburn and found the blending, non-confrontational nature of Aikido extremely appealing and for Jan this was the ultimate martial art that he was searching for. This was a turning point in Jan's martial arts study and he focused exclusively on Aikido training. He trains under the direction of Grady Lane Sensei Rokudan (6th Dan).
