Function2Fight

As an instructor with 15 years experience, I come with knowledge that covers fighting in the ring, the cage or self defense for the streets. I'm still an active professional fighter and I'm constantly staying ahead of the curve when it comes to my training methods. Being a great martial arts instructor is one thing, I compliment this with real world functional workouts.

Kettlebells, steel maces, and medicine balls is just a few of the tools I bring to the table. Along with mastering how to mani ... View Profile
