I enjoy building human beings more than any other expert could enjoy building things. Each person differs in ability, experiences, and perception. This makes the way that every single student processes and relays back the lessons, original for each of them! My teaching approach for each student is unique for each student. I show them how to do it my way, so they can discover how to do it their way. Each client is a constantly changing puzzle that I have to learn and adjust regularly to assure that each student interprets the lessons that I am teaching.
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
Amazing In and of its self nothing compares to these lessons ... trust me I’ve looked and tried .....!!!

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.
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; handicap and dismembered youth, professional Athletes; High School Athletes; juevenile detained youth; adult prisoners from minimum security to super max solitary confinement. Newly to this list is one of my top female students who has now entered the Secret Service
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. There's no bigger demonstration of GUTS, HEART, COMPASSION & SPORTSMANSHIP than this purpose and act.
#1. Assure that you are ready to commit at some level to the training that you are asking for.
#2. Research the background of anyone that you are considering as a trainer or instructor. Assure that their claims of experience and accomplishments is true.
#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 teacher(s) and be proud to be connected directly to him (or her). He should speak highly of his teacher and be excited for you to some day meet him.
#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 has built before you arrived.
#6. The teacher should have compassion and care towards 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! However, he may not be your cheerleader and he definitly won't be your #itch.
#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.
#1. Am I willing to invest in myself to learn this?
#2. What will I sacrifice to stay involved in this?
#3. What conditions or situations do I have that could interfere with my training?
#4. Do I think I could beat up the one that I am going to learn from?
