Introduction: Over 30 years of experience in strength, flexibility and endurance training. Will work with you at your place or outdoors. Have all of the needed equipment with me and skills to get you in shape quickly. Certified and well educated - MA in Physical Education, MA in International Commerce and Policies. Worked as a professional personal trainer at LA Fitness, Sport and Health and Lifetime Athletics clubs. Building up strength and flexibility, as well as helping those who recover from traumas and illnesses is my major specialty. I am well trained and experienced in working with clients in most age categories including young kids and 34 + years old age group. Senior citizens are welcomed! My sub-specialty is the proactive self - defense with no requirement to learn sophisticated advanced technique. I'll teach you how to do it with your current physical conditions, natural personal instinct and movements you are comfortable with. At your request I may teach you how to handle knife, nunchaku, or stick and how to protect yourself from cutting and striking weapons. I will give you enough skills and knowledge to have a chance against either unarmed or armed aggressor. With over 30+ years in martial arts, military service and coaching, I am confident that I will deliver the result that may well exceed your expectations. I teach beginners and advanced student in one-on-one or small group sessions. Will work with you at your place, in a gym or, preferably, outdoor. I am 3rd degree black belt (currently in a process of getting 4th degree Black belt} in Tae Kwon Do, WTF Certified, trained in SAMBO, Jiu Jitsu and Judo (Brown Belt), military grade hand - to - hand combat and self - defense. Pricing for my lessons may vary from $80 to $120 per session plus 40% off for every added person. Details are available at the first meeting or over the phone. I see the process of teaching and training people as an art of sculpture. The only difference is that I help to build not only the shape of the body, but also a character, spirit and will! That is the best part of my job!

Alex had been one of the best trainers I'd ever worked with. I hit every goal I ever set for myself working by Alex's programs. He comes on time always with the plan written in details and with his own equipment. His bodybuilding methodics are quiet unique and had uniquely fit my capabilities. His martial arts and combat skills are superb and had been tested in real life combat situations. I learned a lot from Alex and will recomend him to anyone! Alan Crus

Alex did some personal training and self defense sessions for myself and two teenage children. He brought equipment and was very knowledgeable about strength training, different abilities, and self defense techniques. It was great to be able to workout at home and with my older kids. We hope to resume classes with him later this summer.

Working with the Personal Training for Self Defense was really helpful in building my skills because the instructor was very detailed, understanding, and consistent. I recommend this instruction because it built both my strength and confidence well.

I'm so glad I found Alex!! He is SO wonderful to work with. I have gained so much strength back 3x faster than I would normally. The results are incredible, especially for only working on 2-3 times a week. It's also helped me build mind-body connection to muscles!
