About this pro

Although I have studied tai-chi, karate, and aikido, I do not teach traditional martial arts.  I do not teach sport fighting techniques - much of what I teach would be illegal in a sporting environment.  I teach simple, practical, brutally effective self-defense that will enable you to survive a violent encounter and return home safely to your loved ones.  

I have studied military combatives for the past several years.  The style that I teach is primarily based on the fighting methods taught to Allied commandos during World War Two, along with some techniques taught to CIA officers, US Army Special Forces soldiers, and US Marines.

I have taught and continue to teach people preparing for service in the military or law enforcement.

In addition to teaching self-defense, I also tutor math, science (physics, chem, bio) and electrical engineering.  For more information please see my website

    I have been training in self defense with Henry Nguyen for over 2 months now racking up over 15 one hour sessions and I have learned a lot from our time. My schedule is a little crazy (working 15hours/day) so for me finding someone to work with my schedule was a little challenging but when I first talked to Henry he was very understanding to my schedule and was willing on seeing me 2 times a week from 8:30pm to 9:30pm at my house. Henry is extremely passionate about teaching self defense and if you ever ask him a question he does not know how to answer, you can expect a text the next morning answering your question in detail. I enjoy the session with him and will be continuing to have more


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

For private lessons, I charge $60 per hour.  For group lessons (two to five students), I charge a combined total of $100 per hour (so for example, if teaching a group of four students, each student would only have to chip in $25 per hour).  I also offer a military and law enforcement discount of 20% off.  For new students, I offer one half-hour FREE lesson so that you can try before you buy.  Also for new students, I offer a trial package of two hours of private lessons for only $30, or two hours of group lessons for only $50.

What types of students have you worked with?

Up until now, most of my students have been people planning to enter the military or law enforcement.  Although that has been my main clientele, I am perfectly willing and able to teach people who are not military or police.
