 i do small class or private one on one lessons. Privates are my prefered teaching method for beginners, this gives me full control so the student can have a safe and rich learning experience. One of my favorites aspects of this is the customization of techniques, all tailord to the person's strong points and flaws. The self defense lessons are a mix of combat basics and strategy, stand up and ground work.  i have been training martial arts since 2012. i started with muay thai where i trained for three years before moving on to gracie jiu jitsu. I competed in both disciplines in small tourneys to the big stage events. I lead ... View Profile

Peninsula Dance Oasis

Peninsula Dance Oasis

I am patient and teach with clarity, step by step. I instill in my students a passion for social dancing! Unlike others, I do not hold back teaching them as much as they could digest. I have developed an unique way of teaching so students will retain much more. Many students commented that they felt afer taking a ton of lessons, they forgot most of them, thus wasting their money and time. I have found a way to solve that, proven by my weekly group class of 70 some students.  Also, I do not scold them if they keep making the same mistakes. I help my students improve week after week, month after month. They easily see progress. I am also a ... View Profile
