We offer personal training, self defense lessons, and health/nutrition coaching based on experience. Please see our website. I've been a personal trainer and nutrition/wellness coach for over 22 years now. I will graduate as a Naturopathic Doctor (ND) in December 2015. With over 30 years of experience in the health and fitness industry, we offer a lot of variety when it comes to personal fitness training. We emphasize weight training, bodyweight training, kickboxing, MMA training, bodybuilding, body sculpting, and naturopathic dietary and supplement menus. We also offer our clients the option of taking a genetic test with a company called "Simplified Genetics." This will show us "specifically" what your ratio of proteins, fats and carbohydrates should be according to your own specific genetic makeup and design. It will also show us what percentage of ratios your aerobic training vs anaerobic training should be. We then apply this information that takes out all the guesswork from your exercise routine and diet/supplement protocols. This, in turn, gives us the ability to maximize your genetic potential within, while minimizing any wasted time of eating improperly or performing the wrong types of exercise routines. One of the most important things I can teach my clients is how to optimize their nutritional intake and supplementation and how to target and recruit as much muscle fiber as possible from their training sessions. This specific type of training and eating enhances and quickens your results by unlocking your genetic potential, leading to enhanced strength and muscle gains with simultaneous fat loss. Many people do not realize that they are suppressing their genetic potential because of possible nutritional deficiencies and the lack of high-quality and nutritional density in the foods they are eating. We also need to know what to avoid, so we do not waste our precious time and money on certain products that do nothing for us at the cellular level. I serve in a 7-mile radius from the downtown and uptown areas in Dallas. Please come and visit our training facility in the Uptown Dallas area for a free consultation. In best of health, Innovative Fitness

I took yoga classes from Ken. He incorporated concentration and memory exercises into a well rounded, engaging, and appropriately rigorous hatha class. Ken demonstrated an in-depth knowledge of the poses and a creative approach to developing awareness, strength, and flexibility both at the physical and mental levels. I felt strongly that he was paying attention to and addressing my individual practice and development. He makes a valuable contribution to the yoga community. Om Shanti.

I Have studied with Justin for over 2 years. In that time amongst the many things he has taught me are ; sun, yang, and old yang style tai chi, bagua, self defense, and chi kung. I really appreciate the detailed explanations he gives as to what is behind what he teaches and the way the energy works. He is a very experienced, dedicated, knowledgable, patient, and grounded teacher. I have seen various students come to him after years of training in karate, grasshopper, or kung fu for example, and in one session realize that they have much to learn. Justin is the real deal. Yet he meets you at whatever level you are at. I highly recommend him.

As a WTF (World Taekwondo Federation)-based school, we offer various courses, which include weapons, fitness, hoshinsul, hapkido and taekwondo. We also offer an after-school program, where we will pickup your child from school and teach them martial arts. Martial arts is not about fighting; it's about developing character. Learning about self-defense is important, and is a huge part of martial arts, but the most important and biggest opponent you'll face in life is yourself. Martial arts teaches courage, strategy, discipline, and humility. I also offer classes at private schools, as well as private lessons. Kindly contact me for more details on in-service, seminars, and demonstrations.

Our main focus is on self defense. We won't waste your time, teaching you things like weapons and so forth that you can not even carry with you on the street. Learn how to escape from someone who has you on the ground, not make them "tap out". There is no "tap out" on the street. Weapon disarming, pressure point application, balance disruption, joint locks, and take downs are examples of what we do. If you're looking for trophies and medals, that's not us. We care about your family's safety.

Services include Israeli krav maga, real-life self-defense, women's self-defense, cardio MMA, boot camps, personal training, kickboxing, wrestling, grappling, knife fighting, stick fighting, cane fighting, tactical shooting for civilians, LEOs, and military. Krav Maga is the most battle-proof self-defense in the world and at streets, and it helps people to protect themselves or their loved ones. It's more than just self-defense; it's motivating and exhausting. It will build up your cardio; you will lose weight; you will get stronger and build more power. You will learn to be capable to grow over your goals; that's why I call it the next level of fitness and self-defense. My philosophy: "Everybody is in need because you never know... So that one may walk in peace..."
