Patrick- Fitness & Martial Arts
I am a former Navy SEAL who has personally trained people for over 10 years. I am a brown belt in Brazilian jiu jitsu, train Dutch kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA.
I also train in triathlon & have completed a full Ironman.
I have taught krav combatives, outdoor survival and situational awareness under Brian Rauchbach at Elite Training Center in Redondo Beach.
If you are looking to get fit, I can get you there with weights, kettlebell or strictly bodyweight excercises. Tell me your goals and I will work with you towards acheiving them.
For martial arts instruction, let me know your level and what you'd like to acheive. To the best of my knowledge, I will train you with techniques, that i know are effective and are easily retainable.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I listen to what your looking for. If it's self defense skills, I will include situational awareness & how to present one's self so your not seen as a target.
If your looking for looking to learn jiu jitsu, or kickboxing, you'll learn techniques and then practice applying them, first with a compliant training partner, then gradually build towards working those skills on someone who is non compliant.
However, for both self defense & sport fighting, I recommend honing strong fundamentals with strikes, grappling and body movement.
If your goals are more about fitness, I'll give proven workouts and correct body mechanics, so you see maximum results & avoid injuries.
