I am an exercise enthusiast, a Combat sports athlete, champion and coach as well as a compassionate, emotionally intelligent individual who always has his clients leaving each session knowing they have improved upon some aspect of themselves. I have been all over the world competing and teaching in various martial arts including: Freestyle Wrestling, Scottish Backhold Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu jitsu, Judo, kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing and Mixed Martial arts. I bring something different that other coaches cannot bring to each session, no one has the same kind of experience that I do having worked with people who are elderly, as young as 4 years old, very wealthy and then also with people who come from the favelas in Brazil.
