Who are the Founders?
James Boecker started training in Martial Arts in the mid 1980s. He spent years learning both Martial Arts and the business from his instructor and mentor and opened his first Martial Arts school in 1994. His goal was to touch and change as many lives as he possibly could through Martial Arts and before he knew it, multiple clients approached him about opening their own Martial Arts schools. He unintentionally and organically built the largest Martial Arts organization in Texas by touching lives. While he was doing this, a young lady, Shiva, determined to get in better shape signed up for classes at his original location.
Shiva Boecker was born in Iran in 1980 just after the revolution and along with her parents, brother, and sister, fled the uncertainties of their homeland for the U.S. She later majored in biology and minored in Chemistry with intentions of entering the medical field, but was bit by the Martial Arts bug and decided to pursue her career in the field that had made an enormous impact on her. Not only did she shed pounds, get in shape and gain enormous confidence, but she also met her now husband, James, through Martial Arts. Shiva earned her Black Belt training under James and went on to manage his largest location. In 2013 James sold his organization and at that time, Shiva saw a void in the Martial Arts market that needed to be filled. She created the luxury and boutique model, RockStar Martial Arts, which opened doors in January 2014. James and Shiva now work together as a team on RockStar Martial Arts and its expansion. James’s love for impacting lives has not changed.
Both James and Shiva now love to change lives through entrepreneurship by helping individuals and families take control of their financial future through ownership in RockStar Martial Arts.
