My best friend and I took a one hour private self-defense class with Miguel. He is highly knowledgeable and organized and covered a lot of information in a short amount of time. Both he and his assistant, Justin were very professional. I would highly recommend Miguel for anyone interested in learning how to defend themselves. Thanks Miguel!Nov 20, 2018
Miguel is a cool guy to get to know, and he is also a very proficient JKD instructor. He works with you and tailors lessons to your interests, but also in a structured way to ensure continuous progress. He is keen to also not give you too much at one time, and to ensure that you have proper forms/techniques down. While the progress can be exponential, it is this personal attention that ensures you don’t build ineffective techniques/forms early on. He will hold you accountable to practice, but is also helpful and responsive with communicating and recommending proper resources/videos. One on one instruction is the best, and Miguel is tops.Sep 4, 2018Verified
Miguel has to be one of the best teachers out there. We had a woman’s group night and Miguel was able to come and teach us last minute. Not only did he come out to us but also took time to teach us in order for us to retain the information. He has a way of making sure his students get the best of the best. If you are looking for someone who teaches with a heart give him a cal!!!!!Jun 23, 2018Verified

I completed the course Escape to Gain Safety with Miguel and I feel so good about it! I feel stronger and more confident that I can protect myself. Self defense isn’t just good for ladies, I saw many men in the classes that were strong but needed to know the proper techniques. Thanks Miguel!!!Dec 11, 2017

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My fees are reasonable and flexible. I offer discounts and I'm willing to work out a payment plan for groups or work with a student's budget if I see that they are dedicated and are willing to put the work. I take all major credit cards as well. I always offer and stand behind my money back guarantee, and that is for every class. It is important to me that my students are satisfied and recognize the value of what I teach.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first session is all about assessing the student. His/her physical well being, state of mind, and strength of spirit. We get to know each other, discuss goals and the training process. I go over the curriculum of the skills and equipment, how the arts are structured and determine expectations for growth. I hold each student accountable for his/her training and continued growth. I not only train my students in martial arts or Self-Defense, but I also coach them to help them with their progressive expansion in all areas of life. The coaching part is just an extra bonus I bring to the table and I don't charge extra because I truly enjoy helping people.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have over a decade of training with different teachers in many disciplines but my expertise is in Self-Defense.
