About this pro

I use a multi-tiered system for teaching that brings students from a rudimentary knowledge of how the body works to an advanced applied knowledge of combat.  

Points of Focus:

* Defensive Tactics for the Street

* No-Gi Judo Fundamentals

*Muay Thai Fundamentals

*Combat Conditioning

* Mixed Martial Arts - Integrating Striking & Grappling

* Weapons Handling / Weapons Defense

I love passing down vital knowledge and helping others to overcome personal and existential fears.

    Joe is an awesome teacher who breaks down body mechanics of defense and gives great real life application. I can't wait until the next session


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

We start every class with conditioning and movement drills to better orient the student in delivering techniques.  We'll touch on one advanced technique a day. The student will be eventually prepared for light sparring sessions to demonstrate what they've learned. 

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

* 13 years martial arts experience

* 5 years instructor experience

* Military veteran

* Licensed Personal Protection Officer 

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

* $20 per one hour lesson

How did you get started teaching?

I got my start teaching in February of 2017.  I started a class on meetups.com and found there was a need for a more personal touch with my method of instruction.  I am giving my students the opportunity I wish I had earlier in life.  That's the opportunity to have specialized training that meets their needs and learning abilities. 

What types of students have you worked with?

My students range all across the board.  I've worked with people of all ages and backgrounds.  

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I was very happy to build the confidence of one of my students. This same student demonstrated perfect takedown techniques after only 3 months of training!   

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

Martial arts is an investment in self. The more time you invest the more you'll grow, but also know that this takes time, humility, commitment and patience. 

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

1. Can I commit to training regulay? 

2. Do I have the discipline to train on my own and seek personal improvement? 

3. What are my goals with martial arts and self defense training?
