Michael knows exactly what hes doing I've learned so much from him already I've trained with other trainers and no one comes close to him he is an absolute beast he takes time to teach you, Hes patient, hes flexible with schedules my overall experience with Michael and his training are fantastic I recommend everyone to definitely give him a try if your looking to do martial arts Michael is the trainer for you!! I'd give him 20 stars if I could
Where do i start, working with michael is like working with a true teacher, the attention to detail and the easiness of how he explains and teaches is amazing.
This experience is definitely one I won't remember. All the techniques are used in everyday life. It adds a certain structure to my life making thinking and moving easier on me as I grow and continue to practice the movements and techniques
Upon meeting with a new student I will assess their fitness and skill level and work to prepare them a personal approach to achieving their goals and making them a better martial artist.
I have been teaching professionally since 2010 but have studied in various arts since childhood. Teaching is part of the martial artists path though one should never stop learning. I make sure to constantly research new methods for myself and add them to my repertoire if they are effective in combative application.

I began teaching as a self defense consultant for GKR karate, a world renowned organization. From there after moving to America was introduced to Bruce Lee’s Jeet kune Do from direct lineage of the master himself. I have studied with Dan Inosanto (a personal friend, teacher and student of Bruce Lee), Mark Stas (wing flow system), Tim Tackett (author of Chinatown JKD), Greg Pichardo (Instructor of US Navy Seals and Special Forces), Cass Magda (Magda Institute) and Dustin Santomenna (Phoenix Martial Arts) to name a few. I received certificate of Instructorship for Muay Thai and self defense under Sensei Gabriel Kurunga, black belt of tae kwon do and UFC gym trainer of Muay Thai and Boxing. Also certified under National Exercise and Sports Trainers Association as Muay Thai fitness instructor.
I have worked with students from many different styles and of varying levels of ability. Everybody I train with recognizes the difference in my teaching methods to traditional styles and the improvement to their form becomes more fight functional and increase in fight IQ is guaranteed.
I will be fighting 3 professional kickboxing matches next month. Always training and applying myself to new challenges, inspiring students from around the world. I have taught in England, Boston, India, Philippines and most recently Florida.
A student should find a teacher who treats them as an individual, working based on their personal strengths and weaknesses and developing appropriate regimens for training.
