Introduction: Over 30 years experience in strength, flexibility and endurance training. Will work with you at your place or outdoors. Have all of the equipment to work with and skills to get you in shape in short period of time. Certified and well educated - BA in Physical Education, MA in International Commerce. Worked as a professional personal trainer at LA Fitness, Sport and Health and Life Time 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 34 + years old age group. Senior citizens are welcomed! My sub- specialty is 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 not guarantee you from being always untouched or hit in a street fight, - that is for your ability to apply your skills in challenging environments and, some times, God's privilege. Yet, I will give you enough skills and knowledge to have a chance against armed aggressor. 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 not guaranty you from being hit, that is God's privilege, but I will give you enough skills and knowledge to have a chance against armed aggressor. With over 30 years in martial arts and military service I am confident that my experience and practical skills will deliver result that will 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, experienced in Systema and SAMBO, Jiu Jitsu and Judo (Brown Belt), military grade hand - to - hand combat and self - defense Pricing for my lessons may vary from $70 to $120 per session. Details are available at the first meeting or over the phone. I see the process of teaching and training people as a work in the 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!

Angela M.

I have really enjoyed working with Alex. He is very knowledgeable, takes time to explain ever exercise, which muscles we are working and the benefits. He is really patient and builds his program for you slowly or at a pace that will make you successful I saw a BiG difference in my posture and strength. I only wish I was still in the area to keep working with Alex but I’m overseas for the present time. I hope he’s available when I get back I miss him.

Thank you, Angela! I am here for you when you are back. In fact, I keep your time slot in the morning you got used to, unavailable for anybody else. You are always welcome!

Private Self Defense Lessons

This was my first Thumbtack experience so I did not know what to expect. I called Alex and booked an initial meeting for a self defense class. I was so impressed with his knowledge and ability to teach to me (someone with absolutely no experience in self defense) that I hired him immediately. I would recommend him in a minute, I can't explain how much fun each training is while at the same time also getting a tailored workout as well as learning useful and practical skills!!
