About this pro

The reason my service stands out is that these concepts and techniques are actually real world tested. The tactics and strategies work in real time against realistic attacks and opponents. I take from reality based combatives, sport combat, and traditional arts what works and modify where necessary to client. I have over 25 years of martial arts experience from American Kenpo Karate, Kajukenbo, Japanese Jujitsu to Brazillian Jiu Jitsu to military and police combatives.

The joy comes from teaching people how to truly defend themselves in the real world. If I can save one life by teaching one tactic or strategy, I've succeeded in life. Oss!!!

    Harvy is a great man and a true martial artist. He's been training well over 20 years. With his vast knowledge and experience along with dedication anyone would be lucky to train under him.

First degree black belt in Ed Parkers American Kenpo under Al Farnsworth received in 1990. Brown belt under Professor Robert Drysdale in Brazillian Jiu Jitsu in 2019.

My standard pricing for a one private session is 100 dollars. Two students same price. Pricing is also negotiable. I also give a free introductory lesson which is approximately 30 minutes in length. 

How did you get started teaching?

It's really just the natural progression of the martial artist.

What types of students have you worked with?

Children to adults from all walks of life. I've also have worked with autistic children and adults. My oldest son is autistic, so I have 22 years of working with autism.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I'm a member of team Zenith Brazillian Jiu Jitsu and was supporting the team at the Las Vegas open tournament. Great times with great people on a great team. April 29, 2017

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

I would say look out for people that speak in absolutes. For Example the technique never fails, my system is perfect and fail proof. Nothing is 100%. So I would have pause when people talk in black and white, because it's not, their is plenty of grey. Together we will sort out what works for you.

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

What are your goals? What do you wish to accomplish? How hard are you willing to work? How serious are you about your training? After all sometimes this can be a matter life or death, don't leave that to the mediocre.
