Tamara was great! We were looking to host a self defense class for our office staff and she was quick to respond and offered a lot of great information. Staff was engaged for the session and are still talking about it. I would definitely recommend Tamara for any of your safety needs.

I met with Sifu Derrick this past weekend for a one on one self-defense class. With examples he helped me broaden my mind to awareness (of both myself and my surroundings), counteractive maneuvers against an attacker (from how to make and throw a proper punch and/or kick that would make the most impact to showing me maneuvers to prevent an attacker from grabbing you in the first place.) and escape tactics. I highly recommend any single female out there to attend some kind of self-defense course. It enables you to walk away knowing that it is possible that you don’t have to be a victim. Thank you Thumbtack and thank you Sifu Derrick Kim Lewisville, TX

Justin came out and provided private lessons for me and my two daughters. Honestly I was pleasantly suprised at the volume of information he provided on making sure we have the skills to protect ourselves. We are excited and look forward to the continued training from Justin and his staff.

About

Experience first and foremost. Over the last 28+ years I've made many mistakes but thank God I have learned from all of them. Now I can teach my clients how to avoid those same fitness mistakes and achieve the results they are looking for in a much, much shorter period of time. I've had many a client tell me that they have had trainers before, but never felt their muscles being worked and trained the way that I show them.This has to do with engaging and triggering as much muscle fiber as possible during your training sessions. This creates an almost immediate positive response from the body. Working in this industry is all I've ever done, and there is nothing I would rather do then work in the health and wellness field. Now that I have been studying to be an N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor) for the past 8 years, these studies have helped my clients achieve positive results from certain nutrition protocols I have placed them on so as to unlock their genetic potential that is inside them. This mostly deals with insulin/glucose metabolism. The energy, the changing of peoples lives etc... it's incredibly motivating to watch people implement your teaching and training protocols and see the results that follow, I think us as trainers get more excited sometimes that even our clients who are achieving the results they have so desperately seeked for such a long time in many cases.

About

My unique training style helps to make the workouts fun, challenging, and different every time! I have been involved with fitness for over seventeen years, earning two first place trophies in my debut as a bodybuilder winning both the novice tall and novice over-all divisions! I currently hold a world record in the dead lift category, with the 100% Raw Power Lifting Federation, lifting 585 lbs. at 3 times my bodyweight! I love helping others and being there for their accomplishments!

About

Personal training: I have a multi-disciplinary approach, drawing from the styles, traditions and techniques of my own experience and those of my teachers. These include my certification as a yoga and tai chi instructor, military training and conditioning, MMA/fighter conditioning, traditional martial arts training, HIIT, and bodybuilding. I also like to employ a holistic approach to fitness, incorporating diet and lifestyle in order to yield better results and prevent injury. Martial arts: I have a broad background in s variety of styles, and an o.k. depth understanding of the human body uncommon ful most teachers. Even if I have never trained in the style you are looking to improve, I know how to correct form and techniques to generate maximum efficiency, speed, and power. I Also know how to condition the specific muscles necessary to not only execute the technique, but to do so without causing long term damage to your joints. Yoga: I am 1000 hour hatha yoga certified through Naropa university, the only institution with a bachelor's degree program in yoga teacher training. This means that out of the gate I am equipped with a more comprehensive and developed knowledge than most teachers in America today. And I have access to the knowledge and experience of my teachers, who are themselves experts in this field. I love helping people strive for perfection and watching them grow. I won't lie, I also love encouraging my students and clients to push their perceived limits, and the satisfaction of seeing them break down those boundaries and roadblocks to achieve something greater.

Chuck was very prompt getting in touch with me. We scheduled a meeting to discuss how his aware program would fit as one of our teen summer reading programs as our library. He is very knowledgeable and was just the professional I was looking for.
