My name is Alecia "Mia" Moore and I have received a lot of training from Mr. JC Shegog. He is serious about what he does and shows a lot of compassion towards the trainee. I was a little shy and tense at times and with his realism in his training, I became comfortable with my responses to his training. I received tactical baton training, defensive tactics training and Firearms practical, defensive and tactical training. Even though I am ex- military it had been a while since I had actually fired a firearm so I was nervous in the beginning of my firearm training. Once the Firearm training was complete I was comfortable and felt one with my weapon. I would recommend all his training to whomever feels they need some really good professional training.
JC took a very nervous person wanting some training in shooting a handgun and within one hour had me very comfortable shooting defensively! He was very patient, thorough and made me feel at ease. I will be continuing my handgun training and defensive shooting with JC!!

Professor Cavalcante has a passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and it shows through his teaching.
Mark was great and super committed to empowering us through teaching self defense. He informed us and gave us hands on practice with different scenarios and the correct moves to neutralize our "attacker" and get away. I feel way more equipped and confident after taking lessons with Mark. He was sensitive to our needs if we had any physical issues, and all around trustworthy. I am so glad I was able to take lessons with him and learn from his plentiful experience.
I was looking for a self defense class just so I can be prepared if/when anything ever occurs that would call for me to keep myself safe. Mark was thorough and we got right to the point. In my first lesson I learned stances, elbow strikes, phrases, to be alert and fully present, and so much more. I can't believe we fit it all into just an hour. I felt so energized and better prepared even after the first lesson. I am definitely going back to learn more.
I have been working out with Mark for quite a while and feel he has really challenged me to get in shape. The core training and nutritional tips have been a HUGE bonus!! He is a knowledgeable and friendly guy and feel anyone looking for a trainer should seriously consider one of his sessions.
