    Danny is very knowledgeable regarding his profession. He really cares and makes every effort to give you the best training based on your preferences. We really enjoyed is training session thoroughly. From start to finish he has been very communicative and responsive. I would highly recommend Danny. We hope to have more group sessions with him in the future. Sincerely, Monique

    Danny's training is the best & coolest thing you can do to improve your core, your confidence & your self-control. You'll learn range of motion skills, balance, inner/outer strength & so much more just in the 1st session. Get ready to have the Khaordan experience. It's a must if you want to gain power.

  • Marie Landry

    Taking Danny's training was the Best thing I could have done to resolve some issues I was having with personal safety feelings and general boundaries issues that arise in everyday life, such as co-worker issues. Danny helped me to change my behavior so that I no longer felt uncomfortable. I gained knowledge and techniques to change my behavior which subsequently changed the dynamics in my relationships that were causing me to feel unempowered. After training with Danny, I feel confident that I can interact in any interpersonal or group situation & maintain my individual power without people violating my boundaries anymore. Thankyou Danny. You are a world-class trainer.

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

We have a 30 minute meet & match where we talk about new student needs & focus, as well as, the Khaordo Training Approach.  From that comes a decision, and a probable training plan.

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

I am well versed in Combat Skills & Martial Arts as a Trainer & Lifelong Student.  I have created numerous signature moves & techniques including C241, & A.W.A.R.E.N.E.S.S.. I am a degreed & experienced Electrical Engineer. I worked at NASA & in the Oil & Gas Industry.  My engineering/scientific experience has been a Plus to my Self-Defense Training.  I am a Military Intelligence Army Veteran with Special Ops Training. Additionally, I can execute the One-Inch-Punch made famous by Bruce Lee.

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

At the meet and match meeting, commitment is accessed (I don't accept some students if I sense the learned skills may be misused), & a fee/Quote & time schedule is determined. 

How did you get started teaching?

I started as a pre-teen, taking boxing lessons from my Uncle, who was a Competitive Boxer. I taught my brothers & a sister after that.  As a young adult, I taught combatives to students in college, as well as, tutored academics.  As an older adult I have taught 1000's in Self-Defense, & in Academics as a Teacher & Tutor.  I have also coached sports.

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with students from all walks of life, ethnic groups, & travelers from numerous countries. My clients have included special needs students, gifted & talented, mainstream, senior citizens, & youth as young as 5 years of age.  I have worked with numerous cultural groups, & within cultures. We have developed effective programs for prevention & in response to bullying, as well as, programs to deter & respond to Intimate Partner Violence (IPV).

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Taught a workshop for Youth & Interactive Parents at a Neighborhood YMCA.

I am providing a Free Tai Chi Class on Oct 7th, 2017 to benefit Houstonians adversely affected by Hurricane Harvey.

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

Ask the Teacher 3 Questions:

1) Have you ever been subjected to a Real Street or Home Attack (not a staged or sports competition) and if so, please give a detailed description of the results?

2) How do you adjust or match your training to each individual to get the maximum benefit from your system & style of training. 

3) Do you limit your training to a training studio or dojo, or do you train in the outdoors or in a non-conventional training center?

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

What do I want (student desires) and what do I (the student) really need from the Instructor?

What kind of a student am I?

Do I have any health and safety issues that I need the Instructor to know about? Safety First!
