My Background as a Trainer
What would you like to know?
I started in Kempo Karate in the 70's, then due to the fact that there was very little martial arts in the US ARMY, I took Tae Kwon Do in the early 80's. Now in the middle of the great Ninja Boom, I studied with both Frank Dux and Robert Bussey. I became a police officer in the mid-80's and all my techniques couldn't end with a "neck break", so I ventured out to Aikijujutsu (Bernie Lau) and Jiu Jitsu (Japanese) to learn more in the locking arts. I became a good friend to Paulie Zink, so I started studying Tai Shing Pek Kwar (Monkey Kung Fu) and later Don Baird so I studied two different versions of Kung Fu.
My department taught Krav Maga, so they asked if I wanted to teach, and thought "what the heck, i'll learn another art" so during the early 90's I started in Krav Maga. I have studied KM with both Darren Levine (US) and Eyal Yanilov (Israel).
Never satisified with learning, I started training in Kyusho (pressue points) under Dillman, Lake and others.
And lastly, last July, I obtained an instructor certification under Moshe Galisko in Kapap.
Im sure that I have left out quite a few different little arts, systems that I have studied over the years, so i apologize to any instructors who may be offended by being left out of this short resume.
Currently I hold high ranking belts/teaching certifications in five arts and what I teach is a blend of all those.
Depending on what you want to learn, dictates what I teach. If you are in California and you want me to teach a State Certified course, then I will teach the curicullum which I previously got approved which involves a substantial amount of Krav Maga. If you want to learn Ninjitsu (Ninjutsu), we can cover that. If you want to learn Kysuho Jitsu, then we can discuss that and lastly if you want to learn Kung Fu (Chin Na) or Kapap, then those arts can be covered also.
Hope this answers your question
