    Super awesome training and system!


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

I initially introduce some basic skills and help a student decide what direction they want their training to go. For some, physical conditioning is their primary interest. For others, it is personal protection or a dedicated emphasis on becoming an MMA competition fighter. There are also people simply interested in the discipline of learning a particular martial arts system. This is determined first , so I can better formulate a tailored course of study.

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

I have a university bachelors degree in criminal sociology. I studied Kenpo Karate for over 10 years and received my black belt in 1991. (And have continued study in Kenpo through the rank of 4th degree Black belt in the Parker system of Kenpo. I have instructor level credentials under Sifu Gary Swan in modern pistol and shotgun combat through advanced levels (G.Swan trained directly under Col.Jeff Cooper, founder of the world acclaimed “Gunsight” in Az, USA). I also trained to instructor levels directly under Leo Gaje, jr. in Pekiti Tirsia Kali with certifications in law enforcement and military combat applications. I am a licensed police instructor in defensive tactics with the Texas DPS. I have instructor credentials under H.Hockheims military and law enforcement programs in stick, knife, pistol, and empty hand tactics. My training has also included ranked study to brown belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under Marco Delima/ Markus Maximus Arelio. My studies have also included Muay Thai kickboxing, wing chin, Hung Gar, Silat, and a variety of other systems throughout my life. I also owned a martial arts academy that created amateur and professional MMA teams that competed throughout Texas, Louisiana, Colorado, and Hawaii. I served as an active sparring partner/coach and corner man  for dozens of MMA fighters.
