Effective self-defense classes in Honolulu based on the principles, techniques, and philosophies of Filipino Martial Arts and Bruce Lee.
I am a Certified Instructor in both Burton Richardson’s JKDU/MMA for Street Self Defense as well as Battlefield Kali. I also hold a Purple Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Over the years, I have had the honor of learning from great martial artists such as Baret Yoshida, Tim Tackett, Robert Follis, Chris Haueter, Dan Inosanto, and the late Larry Hartsell and Richard Bustillo. In addition, I'm a Monkey Bar Gym Certified Natural Trainer II who specializes in functional fitness using kettlebells, bodyweight exercises, and yoga.
Instead of an expensive gym, I meet students at local parks or at their home. Private one-on-one and small group self-defense and martial arts classes available.
My approach is a holistic one. I want my students to not only have the skills to fight if they have to, but the knowledge needed to avoid conflict in the first place and deal with the consequences if avoidance is impossible. I am not interested in training the next champion cage fighter. I am interested in helping everyday people develop the ability, knowledge, and confidence needed to keep themselves and those they care about safe in a dangerous world.
