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 30 years, I have held several job positions and entrepreneur roles involving sales, marketing and Executive Protection. Currently, I am a Realtor for Compass, a national real estate company, located regionally in Newport Beach, California. In addition to working in residential real estate, I am also a certified Personal Protection Specialist with 13 years of experience working in Executive Protection and private security.
Throughout those 30 years, I have been a student of several martial arts. I currently hold a Third Degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, an active member of Sayoc Kali and I am well versed in several other effective disciplines. I have had the good fortune to learn from numerous 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 conducting security details or giving back and teaching those in self-awareness and self-defense.

What We Aren't
