Martial Arts has been a passion of mine since I was 9 years old.. I ran a martial arts Academy in the Caribbean for over 19 years and a smaller outfit in Long Beach California for several years.. resume avaiable upon request . Sincerely Gerard
I absolutely enjoy watching a student improve and seeing their faces light up when a task is completed.
There are no reviews yet
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 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.

1) Over 30 years experience in martial arts including Bando Kick Boxing, Nine animal systems of Kung Fu, Wing Chun, Chinese Boxing
2) 3rd and 5th degree in two separate martial arts systems.
I have only recently decided to start teaching privately so no standard pricing as of yet. However, the first lesson or two can be at no cost and once the student sees the value, pricing can be discussed based on number of days per week, how far to travel, etc... This is more of a passion for me than anything else.
After I reached the top grading in my system of martial arts, I opened my own school in the 1980's and taught formally for up to 20 years thereafter.
All types but prefer students over 6 years old..
