I absolutely enjoy watching a student improve and seeing their faces light up when a task is completed.
I’ve only taken 3 classes and I already look like a martial artist!!! I look at the mirror to practice and it’s amazing how his teachings does wonders
Training with Coach G is always a wonderful, exciting and fulfilling time. His teaching style brings the best out of me and allows me to push myself to my highest potential. He creates a very positive and emotional journey I would recommend everyone to experience.
Very detailed and informative in martial arts whether it be performing techniques or historical past of many martial arts.
I have been practicing martial arts for 30 years and hands down this was the best most efficient instruction I have ever had. If you are a beginner or a veteran of the martial arts you cannot go wrong with G’s class
Keep it simple.. fundamentals and basics are everything for future success in any endeavor.. I make sure a student understands each step, how it connects to his / her future development and how everything he or she is learning matters, just like every stroke by an artist on a painting is there for a reason.
Step 1 - Have a conversation before first lesson to discover the students goals
Step 2- Assign one task to student after each lesson to help the student improve during the week
Step 3- Most important to me is the student must be having fun while mastering challenges.
