About this pro

MindStrong's DNA of a CHAMPION program teaches clients to THINK & ACT like a champion!  And it is CHAMPION created by me!  I am a U. S. Martial Arts Hall of Famer, 2x World Champ, 5x U.S. Champ, UFC Vet, Pioneer of MMA, &published author  Life Coach.  I offer more than JUST kicking & punching to my clients!  I develop a trusting friendship with my clients, and along with the education of proven effective Martial Arts combative techniques, I assure to STRENGTHEN THEIR CHARACTER & IMPROVE THEIR LIVES!  I EXCLUSIVELY PERSONALIZE each client's training program to fit their individual needs and abilities.  No two client's programs are ever the same!  That's because no two clients are ever the same!  This assures SAFETY from injury; DIRECT TARGETING on INDIVIDUAL needs; and MAXIMUM RESULTS!

The unique and intense background that I endured & succeeded through has stamped me with the most official authenticity that one could have.  From the street fighting as a kid; to being an international high risk Professional Bodyguarding; to Professional Muay Thai & MMA fighting, I am well educated on what combative techniques can TRULY work for certain people in certain situations, against certain opponents.  And it is from these experiences that I took the top, combat proven effective Martial Arts techniques of the worlds best disciplines and combined them with the strongest MENTAL TOUGHNESS ideologies, the most effective STRENGTH ENDURANCE training, SAFE, PROPER WEIGHT LIFTING for MUSCLE TONE & POWER, with RESPECT & KINDNESS to guide my students to attain SELF-MASTERY!  Students who study in my program with dedication and sincerity become confident, caring leaders with the desire, and courage to step out into the world, and take initiative to do the things that need to be done.    

I enjoy guiding youth and adults up their personal path of self-discovery to enhance their confidence, courage, personal protection skills, and selfless, caring character.  I find my greatest reward from instructing when a student executes a Martial Arts technique that he (or shoe) imagined he could never could do.

    Mindstring is another tool skill for the tool box. Amazing in and if it’s self ..

    I began training under Jermaine Andre' years ago with my family with intentions to get into shape. Soon we were learning great self defense techniques, loosing weight, and building muscle. My daughter has learned, respect, discipline, and self confidence through his youth program. Not only that she proved her skills by winning the championship at the Muay Thai classic World Tournament. If you are ready to get in shape, loose some weight, learn some self defense, or even become a champion Jermaine is the one to guide you RIGHT!

    I'm honored to have the luxury of training under Jermaine Andre'. I've been his student for over 4 years. And have learned so much that is applicable in my everyday life. Not just combat training or healthy eating techniques/habits. But how to be respectful even when you don't receive it in return. How to be determined even when your back is against the wall and you are tired of taking losses. He has shown me how to be a honored fighter and loving person. I never thought that the martial arts would have such a positive impact on myself. From my religion to my community/family relations. I've learned to work as hard as I can. And never beat yourself up about things that you can not change. I for one give high honors to this man Jermaine Andre. In seeing how a person who comes from nothing persevere and becomes GREAT. He is indeed a champion fighter but is also a father, son, leader, author, motivational speaker, and just a great person overall. And he is my Kru so you mess with him you mess with me. Lol! I stand guard on the principles of what he teaches. And I encourage ALL who reads this to train under him and SEE for yourselves firsthand. How much of an amazing teacher he is and what kind of program he has. Peace and Love

How did you get started teaching?

I endured a tough background from my teens up until my middle age adult years.  I was born and raised in St. Louis where I had to constantly STAND MY GROUND  against BIGGER, OLDER MEN where I was outnumbered most of the time.  I used my Martial Arts skills to defend myself and fortunately win every unfair battle.  One day an associate who was getting bullied asked me to protect him.  I informed him that it would be better if I taught him how to protect himself.  He agreed and I started his hard lessons.  From that day on I always knew that the best thing that I could do for every person who ever met me, was to teach them to defend themselves.  And that has been my life priority since then. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have trained boys and girls ages 4-16; Adult men & women;  Teenagers; Professional & Amatuer MMA, Muay Thai, Kickboxing competitors; military personnel; law enforcement; at risk youth; elderly; crippled and dismembered youth, professional Athletes; High School Athletes; juevenile detained youth; adult prisoners from minimum security to super max solitary confinement.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am very fond of the "Guns & Hoses Boxing Charity Event" in St. Louis, MO where local police and local fire fighters square up to box it out all for the honor of raising funds for charity.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

#1. Assure that you are ready to commit at some level to the training that you are asking for.

#2. Research the background of any that you are considering as a trainer or instructor.  Assure that they are legit with their claims and experience.

#3. The personality of the teacher should be calm and compassionate, not intimidating and scary.  He or she should have students that you can visually see that they are benefiting from that which he offers.  His students should be respectful to him, their fellow students, and you.  And the teacher should be just as respectful to all of them.  Tough talking and walking proves NOTHING about true abilities or teaching intent.  The tone around them should feel like a big family.

#4. The teacher should be loyal to his instructors and proudly connected directly to them for you to soon meet if you request.

#5. A combat or fighting background in a teacher does enhance and prove his fighting potential.  However, it DOES NOT prove anything regarding his teaching ability.  Look at what type of students and structure he had built before you arrived.

#6. The teacher MUST be loaded with compassion and care for others.  He should be selfless, filled with gratitude and always offering positive perspective.  His #1 priority on the training floor should be safety and everyone should know it!

#7. Assure that the teacher that you are prospecting is not simply there to patronize you with false confidence just so he can take your money.  He in fact should have the integrity to deny you and your money if he feels you may not be a compatible student wtih him.  Money should not influence his decisions. 


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

#1.  How committed you can be.

#2. What interests and goals you have.

#3. How far you are willing to go in training/performance in regards to ranking, development and potential injuries.

#4. What sacrifices are you willing to make or not make
