David Armstrong



David was born in Syracuse, NY and began practicing martial arts at the age of 6. He earned a black belt in Tae Kwon Do at 14 and took a serious interest in learning acrobatic martial arts maneuvers. This lead him to discover martial arts tricking and sport karate, and soon he began competing at a regional level. David won his first sport karate national championship at 17 and a world title at age 19.

David studied Business Management and Media Studies at Bentley University in Waltham, MA. At Bentley, he brought his tumbling abilities to the cheerleading team. Within 2 years David was cheerleading professionally for the Boston Celtics and he decided to dedicate himself to a career as a performer.

While still in college, David began auditioning for any performance gig he could find and was lucky enough to be invited to audition for Spider-Man on Broadway. After auditioning three times over a period of 18 months, a spot opened up at Spider-Man and David gladly accepted the offer. He replaced the position of long time friend, teammate, and fellow martial artist Craig Henningsen.

David is heavily influenced by many martial artists and trickers who have used their talents to become professional dancers and stuntmen. His biggest influence is Steve Terada, a well known martial arts tricker who went on to win ABDC with QUEST crew. Other influences include: Manny Brown, Craig Henningsen, Anis Cheurfa, Kyle Cordova.

Outside of performing David loves Netflix and cats.
