"Why train with me?
I call my training method Reflexive Tactical Combat & Fitness System. The training method is designed as a modern martial art using practical drilling methods of the "ancient martial arts" and efficient fitness system to give you a stronger, agile, and more mobile body.
RTCF does not focus on sport competition or static unrealistic self-defense techniques. The system is founded on drilling methods that creates an instinctive reflexive response to any modern-day empty-hand threat, always assuming that your opponent is skilled and experienced.
My primary goal is to help you develop a healthy life and to teach you how to protect yourself and your loved ones while providing a safe practice and training environment.
RTCF is a weapon-based integrated martial art with an emphasis on real-world tactical counter offense. Although this is an eclectic method, this system is largely influenced by the traditional Filipino martial arts. Filipino martial arts use a practical pedagogical process of drilling with an active and resisting partner providing counter pressure. This method of training provides thousands of repetitions that will imprint multiple responses into your brain.
The drilling method is also high-energy and will provide incredible development of fitness attributes and weigh management. In addition, you will be exposed to body-weight exercises to create agility, flexibility, power and strength.
I have been studying and practicing martial arts for 40 years. My father is a martial arts instructor who mixed parenting, coaching, and martial arts into one providing a warrior type of experience that has led me to where I am today.
I've dedicated my life to learning and perfecting martial arts as means to self-protection, personal discovery, and health. Most importantly is the ability to use that knowledge to transform you into a confident, strong, and positive person. Through a specific and focused protocol, I work to transform you into a modern day warrior."
