Introduction: I specialize in training individuals in practical self defense tactics and strategies. Anywhere from single unarmed attackers or grappler scenarios, to attackers with knives, clubs or guns, all the way to multiple attackers. I have training in traditional martials arts such as Tae Kwon Do, Shotokan, Kempo, Small Circle Ju Jitsu, Brazillian Ju Jitsu, Kyusho-Jutsu Kokusai Shihankai as well as training in greco roman wrestling and Russian Systema. I feel my blend of different martial arts knowledge and techniques is ideal for creating a practical self defense that matches the person. I also provide training in Tai Chi and relaxation exercises for increasing blood flow, balance and flexibility. I also specialize in women's self defense. I love to help people become more confident in their ability to protect themselves and their family. A confident person is a much less likely to be the victim of an attack than one who is not. I feel that everyone should have some level of self defense skills, and feel confident in their ability to use them. As a father of a son and a daughter, I take solace in knowing they are well prepared in the event someone should try to attack them.

Brian is amazing! I already feel like I've learned so much about self defense after only a few weeks with him and I definitely plan on continuing. We've gone over basic karate, knife defense, and are now getting into gun defense. Who else do you know can teach you all of this?! I can't wait to keep learning.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    I offer personalized private self defense instruction. Discounts are applied for paying for multiple sessions in advance, for longer duration sessions, and for additional individuals in a session.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I start with a short interview to understand their previous experience and to learn about the concerns or insecurities they have with regards to defending themselves. I then build a customized curriculum of tools an techniques to develop their personal self defense style.

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

    I've been training in various forms of martial arts for over 25 years. I hold multiple 2nd degree black belts in various arts, as well as have 12 years of greco roman wrestling experience.
