To provide a simple and effective way for anyone - no matter what age, ability or ailment - to employ effective situational awareness and self-defense.
Over the past 27 years, I have held several job positions and entrepreneur roles involving sales, marketing and executive protection. Currently, I'm a Realtor for Villa Real Estate located in Newport Beach, California. In addition to working in residential real estate, I'm also a certified Personal Protection Specialist and work in the private security industry.
Throughout those 27 years, I have been a student of several martial arts. I currently hold a Third Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and I'm well versed in several other disciplines. I have had the good fortune to learn from several individuals in the martial arts world and I have also had the opportunity to learn from outstanding individuals in the private security environment.
On a personal note, from first hand experience, I truly understand the importance of keeping your family safe and anti-bullying issues. Having the combination of the martial arts/security environment, coupled with my business and family background, has provided me a comprehensive approach when giving back and teaching those in self-awareness and self-defense.
Who We Are

We provide instruction to individuals, groups, families, community associations, corporations, small businesses, schools, team sports and youth programs.
What We Aren't
